Jennifer Garner is coming home to West Virginia to help Save the Children open six sites in the state.

The charity says Garner and Mason County superintendent Suzanne Dickens are going to participate in a press conference Friday in Ashton.

Garner, who’s married to actor Ben Affleck, grew up in Charleston.

Save the Children offers early education, literacy, physical activity and nutrition programs for children. The charity says its programs reached more than 70,000 kids in the country this year.
