Parkersburg Rotary Club members welcomed one of their own as their speaker today in order to learn more about the United Way Alliance Campaign.
The campaign's goal is to raise money to support five community-wide initiatives and more than 40 local partner agencies striving to make the Mid-Ohio Valley a better place. United Way focuses on three main aspects as they get the word out about their organization and raise money.
"Our United Way campaign has three focus areas: education, income and health. We think those are the building blocks to a great community and so all of the money we raise stays here in our local community," says Executive Director, Andrea Shirey.
The United Way campaign kicks off September 8 and runs through the rest of the calendar year.
