United Way kicks off its 2013 campaign

Sep. 05, 2013 @ 07:00 AM

HUNTINGTON  —  The United Way of the River Cities has started its 2013 campaign season and is encouraging community members to contribute.

Addressing education, income, health and safety-net issues 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 its foundation. Each contribution counts.

By investing toward United Way of the River Cities’ goals, 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.

“Each contribution makes a huge difference and will help us achieve results in our community,” Will Holland, United Way director of resource development, said in a news release. “With the money raised during the campaign, we are able to help fund a number of programs implemented by health and human services agencies. 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 contribute, and we appreciate each donation - no matter the amount.”

To give during the 2013 workplace campaign, visit www.unitedwayrivercities.org/give. Contact Holland at will.holland@unitedwayrivercities.org or 304-523-8929, ext. 112.
