Your work contributes to the education of our students, which helps to improve our communities. Likewise, many of you do something outside of your work that benefits our region. Perhaps you mentor a middle school student, teach an adult to read, donate food and clothing to a pantry or help qualified individuals file their income taxes for free. Cabell County Schools is full of caring individuals who are proud of our communities and work every day to make things a little better for someone else.From Monday, November 30, through Friday, December 18, you have a chance to continue your good work. During these three weeks, you have the opportunity to contribute to United Way of the River Cities through this year’s workplace campaign. We encourage you to become a partner in United Way of the River Cities’ efforts to address critical issues in our region. All of the money raised here, stays here.

United Way raises funds to ensure that individuals and families in crisis have food, clothing, safe shelter, and medications.
