United Way Day of Action

Wednesday, June 21st was the United Way Day of Action.

Walking past Veteran's Square you may have noticed a fresh coat of paint on the ground. Main Street Fairmont had their volunteers spruce up Adams Street by repainting the blue and gold concrete at Veteran's Square Plaza. Volunteers also went around and picked up trash around downtown.

We want to thank the Tygart Valley United Way and all the volunteers who got their hands dirty and helped us make the area look fresh!

United For Kids

United Way is looking for donations for school children across Marion, Webster, Barbour, and Tucker counties. They are in need of items such as clothing and personal hygiene items to distribute to children in need of them in the 50 schools in the area. If you are able to donate you can drop your items at the collection box at 221 Washington Street in Fairmont, or order directly off of their Amazon wish list, so it is delivered right to them!


More information about the project,, what to donate, and ways to donate can be found HERE
