HUNTINGTON — Cabell Huntington Hospital recently donated $60,000 to United Way of the River Cities. The funds raised by CHH are gathered from payroll deductions, special events and individual donations by employees.

“For us, working with United Way is part of our heritage and it’s part of our future,” said Kevin Fowler, president and CEO of CHH. “This is another demonstration of the entire hospital wanting to give back to the community.”

United Way of the River Cities is a nonprofit organization which partners with our diverse and united community to solve its greatest issues. Dollars raised throughout the year are invested in programs and strategies to get the best results for the community.

“Cabell Huntington Hospital really works hard all year long to raise funds that are needed to do the work we do,” said Carol Bailey, United Way of the River Cities’ executive director. “United Way of the River Cities is truly a community-driven organization. We look to the community to tell us what the needs are and to help us fund the resources that meet those needs. United Way in particular, and the Huntington area in general, is very fortunate to have a partner like Cabell-Huntington Hospital in its corner.”

Contributions made to the United Way goes to support funded partner programs that create long-term solutions to problems in the areas of education, income, health and safety-net services/basic needs. This contribution will help change nearly 1,900 lives in Cabell, Wayne, Lincoln and Mason counties in West Virginia and Lawrence County, Ohio.
