United Way representatives talk transition

Posted:

Bluefield, WV (WVVA)--Representatives of non-profit agencies are asking, "What's next?" after United Way of the Two Virginias lost its non-profit status earlier this year, and more recently its membership with United Way Worldwide.

A representative for United Way Worldwide, and the Executive Directors for United Way of Southern West Virginia and United Way Highlands took questions at a breakfast Tuesday held at the Quality Inn in Bluefield, West Virginia.  These two local agencies will now cover the territory previously served by the United Way of the Two Virginias.

Local non-profit leaders are expressing what they are most concerned about during this transition.  "They are most looking for resources to continue their work. You know they have been receiving from the United Way of the Two Virginias and they are looking for opportunities with the United Way of Southern West Virginia and United Way Highlands," say Jenny Palazio with United Way Worldwide.

Both the united way of Southern West Virginia, and Virginia Highlands will accept requests for basic needs for 2014.
