United Way campaign still ongoing

THE 2013-14 campaign for the United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley has gone above the half-way point, Jim Rock, Campaign Chair, told the United Way Board of Directors this week.

To date, the Campaign has raised more than $400,000 of its goal of $777,777, Rock reported.

“December and January are significant times for the campaign, so I encourage everyone who is thinking about having a workplace campaign, or making an individual donation, to step forward so we can reach, and even exceed, our goal,” Rock said.

Volunteers are being sought for the five Allocations Panels that will tour the United Way agencies in February and make funding recommendations to the United Way board.

For information on conducting a workplace campaign, or to make a donation to the United Way, please contact the organization at 51-11th St., Wheeling, WV 26003, or call 304-232-4625. Those interested in serving on the Allocations Panels may also contact the United Way office.
