Cabell Huntington Hospital/SEIU Local 1199 contributes to United Way of the River Cities
Employees and union members made a generous contribution of $50,000 to United Way of the River Cities’ 2013-2014 fundraising effort. This contribution, which was generated through a workplace fundraising campaign, helps United Way of the River Cities move closer to its $1.2 million goal, which means helping 30,000 people in the community. The donation will be used to support funded partner programs in the areas of Education, Income, Health and Safety-Net Services.
Cabell Huntington Hospital/SEIU Local 1199’s campaign increased 13 percent from 2012 to 2013. Employees and union workers helped change 1,250 lives in our community.
“The Cabell Huntington Hospital United Way team worked hard this year to educate our employees about what their donations will do to change the lives of Tri-State residents, and we are proud of their response,” said Brent A. Marsteller, president and CEO of Cabell Huntington Hospital. “Their generosity and compassion is shown in our $50,000 contribution to the annual campaign for the United Way of the River Cities.
“In addition to our monetary contribution, CHH employees proudly collected and donated more than 10,000 diapers, 5,000 wipes and additional food and supplies to help current United Way funded partners, including the Cridlin Food Pantry, the Huntington High School Food and Clothing Pantry and The Healing
United Way of the River Cities is very grateful for Cabell Huntington Hospital’s continued support.
“It’s always a triumph for any company able to increase their contribution from the previous year,” said
Will Holland, United Way director of resource development. “But, Cabell’s unprecedented increase of
13 percent is truly a testament to the hard work and incredible energy they put into this campaign. The Hospital is a wonderful partner and a true champion of United Way.”
