River Cities United Way is excited to announce Sterilite Corp and their employees, and employees of their temp agency, Marathon Staffing, started the 2014-2015 Campaign off donating $67,000 (20%) towards our goal of helping our partner agencies deliver direct services to kids, families, people with special needs and elderly in our local community. To celebrate, we asked some of their employee’s to hang the first two circles on our sign at Wheeler Park to show how far along the campaign has come. With as little as $3 a month you too can help with Lab Screenings for an individual, $5 a month provides Legal Aid and Advice to those not able to afford an attorney and $10 a month provides one household with 100 pounds of food. It only takes a little to help those less fortunate. Lyn Demaret, President/CEO for River Cities United Way says, “We want people to donate because it feels good, not so they put their own situation in a crisis. Every little bit helps and there are so many ways to get involved such as to volunteer or advocate [talk].” An added benefit this year is the “Arizona Working Poor Tax Credit” that can be claimed on your State Tax Return without the need to itemize. This is available in addition to the School Tax Credit, allowing you to file up to $200 for individual or up to $400 for married filing jointly. Please consult your tax advisor with questions. RCUW currently funds 30 Partner Agencies that provide 50 different programs in Mohave & La Paz County, Laughlin and Needles.
