United Way thanks supporters

To the Editor,

Weirton United Way would like to thank our community for the fantastic support received for the Pink Flamingos fundraiser that was held from September 14, 2018 to November 29, 2018. Our committee had so much with this event and we hope you enjoyed it too!

Forty-two businesses and residences were “flocked” by the Weirton United Way. Participants donated to the 2018 Giving Campaign and in return were able to choose where the flamingos would roost. Friends, families, neighbors and businesses joined in and sent the flock as a fun prank. Our flamingos were also requested for a few birthday wishes and to help celebrate a wedding anniversary. We truly appreciate the support for our city’s primary charity!

Special thanks to Mike and Joyia Lytle of Allstate Insurance for bringing the idea to the United Way and for chairing the event.

The 2018 Campaign kicked off in September with the goal set at $240,000 in support of our member agencies which provide services and programs benefitting many in our community every day! For more information on the Weirton United Way or to donate, contact the office at 3970 Main Street, Weirton or (304) 748-7213.

With gratitude.

Luke Myers

2018 Campaign Chairman
