All proceeds from the Golf Classic are used in reaching the annual Giving Campaign Goal which supports our 12 Member Agencies. These agencies are the backbone of this community and without their programs and services many residents would go without basic needs — food, shelter and clothing. Contact the United Way office at (304) 748-7213 to learn about other volunteer opportunities. Let’s keep heritage, hope, and caring in our hearts and minds for our community for many years to come.
