2016 United Way of the Greenbrier Valley Campaign
A letter from Campaign Chair Ron Magruder
In the days following the June 2016 flood, United Way of Greenbrier Valley provided hands-on assistance in the initial phases of relief. Our strategy was simple: do what United Way does best. We examined the needs, determined the most effective and efficient ways to help, rallied our partners and resources, and deployed them. Greenbrier, Monroe, and Pocahontas Counties continue to be impacted by the flood, and through organizations like United Way of Greenbrier Valley we have been able to start the road to recovery. We are proud of our Executive Director Erin Hurst, Board of Directors, and especially the countless volunteers for their tireless efforts during an immensely difficult time for the Greenbrier Valley. In addition, we want to thank each of you for your participation in uniting to help your neighbors.
Assisting people in crisis is an enormous undertaking. United Way of GBV does this every day by addressing the areas of education, health, financial stability, and basic needs in Greenbrier, Monroe, and Pocahontas Counties. With your help, our goal of $225,000 will enable United Way of GBV to continue to fund local non-profits who count on us year-round to support their programs and services. Now is the time to join together to reach United Way of GBV’s annual campaign goal. Please see attached a list of our funded partners and how United Way of GBV supports local communities throughout the year.
In 2015-2016, United Way of GBV provided support to 25 local non-profits; therefore, your dollar goes farther when you give to the United Way. I ask that you consider a first-time gift, renewal of your previous one, or a 5% increase of your contribution amount to help our communities in these challenging times. This year especially attests to the need for additional funding and new donors. Your time, talent, and treasure are important investments in the Greenbrier Valley.
Contributions can be made via check payable to United Way of Greenbrier Valley and mailed to United Way of Greenbrier Valley P.O. Box 572 Lewisburg, WV 24901.
