CHARLESTON, WV (WCHS/WVAH) — The United Way of Central West Virginia has a unique way of raising money for charity this year.
It is challenging the community to raise $10,000 in 24 hours during Giving Tuesday.
The president of the organization, Margaret O’Neal, is offering to spend one night on top of the roof of their building in Charleston if that goal is met.
O’Neal was the executive director or The United Way of Southern West Virginia until she accepted the job in Charleston this past summer.
She said spending the night on the roof is worth it, because it’s for a good cause.
“For United Way, disasters happen every day,” O’Neal said. “Somebody’s house burns down, some child unfortunately is abused or neglected, somebody’s hungry, somebody is homeless. So for the United Way, Giving Tuesday is a great way to get our message out.”
If you’d like to donate money, you can do so on the United Way website.
