United Way campaign under way

Nov. 13, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

The 2012 campaign is under way for The United Way of the River Cities with a goal of $1.25 million. Reaching that goal helps fund programs for more than 20 Tri-State agencies that provide vital services in Cabell, Wayne, Mason and Lincoln counties in West Virginia and Lawrence County, Ohio. One of those partners is the Community Mission Outreach.

Program mission: The purpose of the CMO is to help needy families in the area feed and clothe their families and improve their well being by providing nutritional food and adequate clothing.

Outcome: Families will be helped with food and clothing 5,039 times, totaling 13,209 people served.

How you can help: Give through the campaign where you work or visit www.giveunitedway.org. For more information, contact Scott Neill at scott.neill@unitedwayrivercities.org or 304-523-8929, Ext. 2.
