Community means we come together. Community means we rally around each other and fight to make things better.
West Virginia University is a community itself, yes. But it is also part of a bigger network of friends and family here in North-Central West Virginia. And we know giving back is vital to the success of the community.
For 36 years, West Virginia University has been doing so by supporting the United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties. We raise money as part of our WVU United Way Campaign. It’s a great way to make important, lasting changes in the community, and I’m excited to be the one leading the way this year as our 2019 campaign chair.
Our goal this year is $250,000, and we need your help, more than ever, to Invest In Your Community.
The United Way serves the community by fighting for the health, education, and financial stability of everyone in Monongalia and Preston counties. The organization works with 24 funded partners and 46 programs, but it also has internal programming, such as the Family Resource Network, 2-1-1 call service,and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
The dollars we raise during this crucial endeavor stay right here in Monongalia and Preston counties. So please help this community by giving in whatever way you can, whether it be a dollar, 10 dollars, or 100 dollars. No gift is too small to make a difference in the community.
West Virginia University plays a vital role in West Virginia, and we should continue to support it and invest in its people and programs. If we make this investment together, we can build a vibrant future for everyone among the West Virginia hills.
Let's Invest In Our Community.
Thank you for your continued support of West Virginia University, United Way, and our community.
Keith Jackson | 2019 Campaign Chair
