Lace Up For Kids

Lace Up For Kids helps families in need to get a brand new pair of sneakers for their school age children to start the new school year. The need is great so donations are essential!

Wendy’s, WTOV9 and United Way have teamed up to help children in grades k-12 to get a brand new pair of tennis shoes to start the new school year in. Families can apply for each of their school age children to get a new pair of sneakers if they live in the counties of Brooke, Ohio and Marshall in WV or Belmont in OH.

Endowment Fund

Since 1931 the United Way has partnered with individuals, businesses and organizations in support of local social service programs, therefore maximizing the effectiveness of a single donation. In 1999, the United Way created an Endowment Fund with the Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley, Inc. Today, income generated by this Fund offsets the administrative/operational expenses of the agency. Our goal is to increase the principle of the Endowment Fund so that the income meets the United Way’s total administrative/operating expenses. To that end, all of the funds raised from our Annual Campaign would be paid out to our United Way Agencies.
