The United Way focuses its efforts in three primary areas:
Many employers across the area are conducting United Way campaigns now. Anyone with the means to help is encouraged to give. The United Way welcomes donations of time as well.
Some folks bring up a scandal involving the national United Way years ago as a reason not to give, but that situation involved no local people and only pennies, if any money, given from here.
The local United Way is independent, and money given here stays here. Not giving helps no one.
But giving to the United Way of Central West Virginia will help the local people who need it most.
Imagine what our community can do when together we give, advocate and volunteer.
