Spring has sprung! That means it’s time for DENIM FOR A DIFFERENCE for United Way of Southern West Virginia. It works like this: During the week of March 30th through April 3rd, businesses, schools and other organizations allow their employees to wear denim to work in support of our United Way.

A $5 donation allows you to wear jeans for one day, $10 gives you three days of comfort OR for just $15 you can wear jeans to work ALL WEEK!

“This is a fun and easy way to support a great cause!” says Executive Director, Megan Legursky. “Our United Way of Southern West Virginia supports over 40 local non-profit partners. Every dollar raised during our Denim For A Difference week truly DOES make a difference. With your help, we’re able to support local food and baby pantries, help struggling families find shelter and clothing, put shoes on children’s feet through our Equal Footing Shoe Program, provide resources 24/7 through our 2-1-1 Hotline, and extend FREE education classes to grandparents through our Healthy Grandfamilies Program.”

Denim For A Difference is a traditional favorite in our community. Take a week to DRESS DOWN in support of a great cause! Look for our Denim For A Difference badges being worn by participants in local businesses, schools & organizations in support of our United Way of Southern West Virginia! Every single person involved truly makes a difference.

THANK YOU to our sponsors : The Register-Herald and Southern Communications.
