Groups still supporting fundraiser

The United Way of Southern West Virginia has kicked off its Spring 2014 Denim for a Difference campaign.

Here’s how it works: This week, businesses, schools and other organizations that have registered with the United Way will let their employees wear jeans to work.

For a $5 donation, you get one day of denim wear; $10 gets you a three-day pass; and for $15, you can wear jeans to work for the entire week.

Those dollars find their way to the United Way’s coffers to help it meet its annual campaign goal to fund its 34 nonprofit community organizations supported by the United Way in Raleigh, Fayette, Summers, Nicholas, Wyoming, Mercer and McDowell counties.

To register, contact chairwoman Teresa Kelly at the United Way office at 304-253-2111 or by e-mail at
