ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - United Way of Roanoke Valley is participating in Giving Tuesday this year and for the first time, they’ve set a monetary goal.

The nonprofit is hoping to reach $3,000 by the end of the day, and they’re almost there.

As 44% of families in the Roanoke Valley struggle to make ends meet, United Way works throughout the year to help families get access to resources they need.

From vaccine clinics to food pantries, United Way helps in more ways than you might think.

“Today it’s about reaching out to those who are near and far who understand the challenges, the demographics of the Roanoke Valley and surrounding areas to be able to support our efforts in helping families, elevating our families to self sufficiency,” said Alisha Childress, the vice president for resource development.
