[efscolumn lg=”8″ md=”8″ sm=”12″ smoff=”0″ mdoff=”0″ lgoff=”0″ centeredsmall=”” centeredmedium=”” centeredlarge=””]You are an important member of the Marshall University family. 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 at Marshall which 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. Marshall University 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 Thursday, October 17 through Friday, November 15, you have a chance to continue your good work. During these four 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. If you already donate your time and/or financial support, thank you! If not, we hope you will consider doing so.

United Way of the River Cities supports programs and strategies that address problems in our region. United Way raises funds to ensure that individuals and families in crisis have food, clothing, safe shelter, and medications. They create long-term solutions to critical issues like substance abuse, the dropout problem, lack of life preparation skills and childhood obesity. United Way is also involved in partnerships that are making an impact on early childhood learning, financial stability, dropout prevention, and preventing substance abuse among youth. Learn more here.
