Farm Credit has announced a $25,000 donation to United Way to assist with the relief efforts in West Virginia due to the recent flooding. Farm Credit of the Virginias CEO- Elect, Peery Heldreth says, “It’s a privilege to support the ongoing recovery efforts that brought devastation to so many in late June. We know that many people remain displaced and others continue to face challenges restoring their homes. We hope this money can help some find a bit of relief.”
United Way plays a vital role in creating positive change within their local communities and the same can be said for the progress they have made with the flood recovery efforts taking place in West Virginia. Using a simple, but effective strategy they examined the needs of those affected, determined the most effective and efficient way to help, rallied their partners and resources and deployed them. Farm Credit is proud to partner with United Way in order to continue making great strides towards the rebuilding of southern West Virginia.
