There’s still time to make a United Way pledge


There’s still time to make pledges to United Way, according to Jaye Ike, coordinator of this year’s campaign.

Marshall University and United Way River Cities have worked together as a team for years to help provide the basic health and human services to friends and neighbors in need, Ike said. And  Marshall offers employees the convenience of giving through payroll deduction as a way of making contributions  easier and more convenient.

Staff have received the 2012 United Way pledge forms via campus mail. There is a PDF copy online as well. They can be returned to Ike at the College of Fine Arts or Smith 160 on the Huntington campus.

“Our committee’s mission is to raise $35,000 and increase participation,” Ike said. “Will you help? Just $1 per paycheck can change someone’s life. Our neighbors need our help. Let’s show them we care.”
