Fund raises more than $50,000; time running short to give

By Staff reports

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- There's no time to waste if you are considering a gift to the Gazette Charities Christmas Fund.

This week, generous Gazette readers gave more than $20,000 to the fund, which goes to support 10 local help agencies in our area.

The work of those agencies is integral in meeting the need that exists in our community.

The fund now stands at $52,000, but our yearly goal is still a long way off, and Christmas in less than a week away.

Please don't delay. To give, look for the donation coupon in today's paper or click on the Christmas Fund logo on this website.
