“We had a significant number of new donors through Match Madness this year,” said Staci Stephen, Executive Director of United Way of the Upper Ohio Valley.  “This year was a huge success that allows us to further our reach in the community, but none of this would be possible without the Ohio Valley community and Bordas and Bordas. We can’t thank Jamie Bordas and his entire team enough!”

The United Way’s campaign is themed “Raised Here. Stays Here.” Because ALL donations to the United Way stay local. The United Way funds over 30 programs that support community members in Hancock, Brooke, Ohio, Marshall, Wetzel, Tyler and Belmont Counites.  Beyond that, the United Way is at the forefront of advocating for nonprofit organizations in the Ohio Valley, promoting giving and encouraging volunteerism.
