Pottery Place selling “Go Herd 2012” ceramic footballs to benefit United Way, Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts
The Huntington location of The Pottery Place is selling special edition ceramic footballs with “Go Herd 2012” on each football. The pieces will be numbered, and customers who purchase a football will be able to paint it in the store.
Each football costs $85, and most of the proceeds will go to United Way of the River Cities; furthermore, $5 of each purchase will go toward Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts. United Way of the River Cities will contribute the funds to the United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund, which is administered by United Way of New York City.
“We are very excited to partner with The Pottery Place on this special project,” said Scott Neill, United Way director of resource development. “We encourage Marshall fans to purchase a football for themselves or for a loved one during the holidays. You have to act fast because once the footballs are gone, there aren’t any more. These pieces will be great additions to fans’ collections.”
Footballs will also be placed in local businesses to be raffled to employees. The winner will receive the ceramic football and may paint it for free at The Pottery Place’s Huntington location. Pottery Place employees will paint an additional football that will be signed by the 2012 Marshall University Thundering Herd football team. This piece will be auctioned off at the end of the season. More details will be available soon.
More information about the United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund: Contributions to the fund will be used by local United Ways along the Eastern Seaboard, including those in West Virginia, to address the near-term and long-term recovery needs of communities most affected by the hurricane. In addition, the fund will be utilized to bolster United Way’s community impact partners that serve hurricane-affected individuals and families who are already vulnerable — struggling with food insecurity and the ability meet their most basic needs. United Way of New York City will lead fundraising efforts and ensure that all funds are used efficiently and effectively to serve those in need. United Way of New York City will charge no administrative fees.
