United Way’s fundraising campaign continues
United Way of the River Cities encourages community members to give during the 2012 workplace campaign season, which ends January 31, 2013. Even the smallest donation can go a long way in helping provide solutions to critical community issues and more. Individuals can make a pledge, which can be paid off over the course of 2013.
Addressing education, income, health and safety net services are paramount to United Way of the River Cities’ core mission, which is to make the community a better place for its citizens. Often, this doesn’t involve Band-Aid fixes, but the involvement of people, time, and resources to help locate and solve the problem from the foundation and beyond.
By investing toward the set $1.25-million fundraising goal, community members will help make a difference in the lives of many throughout Cabell, Wayne, Mason and Lincoln counties in West Virginia and Lawrence County, Ohio.
“It’s important to know that the goal isn’t just a goal,” said Will Holland, United Way director of resource development. “With the money raised during the campaign, we are able to fund a number of programs implemented by health and human services agencies that fall in line with our mission. The more money we raise, the more we can distribute toward funded partner programs. This ensures that we are making the maximum community impact and targeting key issues within our community. We encourage everyone to give before the end of January, and we appreciate each donation — no matter the amount. Help us reach our goal to find out the identity of the mystery person on www.giveunitedway.org.”
