ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - A group of local artists are using their skills to help injured wildlife in our area.

Artists with the Scenic Hills Art group created and donated several paintings that are now on display at Mac N' Bob's restaurant in Salem.

Mac N' Bob's donated its wall space to the cause.

The canvas originals are for sale. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center.

Danielle Yarber, one of the artists, said it was important to her group to be able to help the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center.

"I'm a big believer in helping the wildlife in our area. The Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center is the only facility in this area in the state with the kind of work they do," Yarber said.

Customers at Mac N' Bobs can buy the paintings at the restaurant. Those interested can also view and reserve their painting by visiting SWVA Wildlife Center's facebook page.
