The Marshall University Student Government Association is hosting a raffle to benefit the United Way Tuesday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Memorial Student Center.
Aja Smith, Marshall University student body vice president, said tickets cost $1 for one ticket or $5 for six tickets.
“All of the raffle money will go toward our goal of raising $35,000 for United Way, proceeds from the t-shirts also go to this goal.” Smith said. “More importantly, we’re trying to raise awareness for United Way, and increase participation in our campaign.”
Students, staff and community members can also donate to United Way by purchasing a T-shirt or hooded sweatshirt.
Jaye Ike, Chair of the United Way committee at Marshall University, emphasized the importance of United Way in the community.
“When you give to United Way, you’re spreading your money across many agencies and programs in our community,” Ike said. “The agencies are vetted by volunteers, so that you know your money is going to the most important and viable programs.”
United Way of the River Cities supports programs and strategies that address problems in our region.
