Giving Tuesday funds going to local nonprofits

Jan. 6—The United Way of the Ohio Valley (UWOV) is giving donations to three local nonprofits from funds raised from the Giving Tuesday campaign. The campaign was aimed to raise money to help alleviate financial securities among people facing the possibility of becoming homeless.

The Help Office of Owensboro, Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul received checks in the amount of $4,166 to help the nonprofits assist residents in need.

"We are so appreciative for all of our Giving Tuesday donors who gave so graciously from their hearts," said UWOV President Paula Yevincy. "These gifts will assist those who need immediate assistance to meet life's most basic needs to maintain a safe and stable home."
