Governor Jim Justice proclaims 2-1-1 day in West Virginia for United Way Alliance

PARKERSBURG, W. Va. (WTAP) - Governor Jim Justice issues a proclamation Tuesday, stating February 11th is "West Virginia 2-1-1 Day."

The United Way Alliance of the MOV provides assistance throughout 12 counties.

By dialing the 2-1-1 phone number, people are able to find access to many community resources like food assistance, health care, family services, and more.

"So, our local leaders are realizing that they can turn to us and say, 'where are the gaps, where are the deficits in our communities and we have that great data on hand," said Stacy DeCicco, United Way Alliance of the MOV, executive director.

DeCicco says, 2-1-1 is basically an ongoing community needs assessment and having the ability to collect this data helps for the betterment of the community.

Dupont donated $5000 to the 2-1-1 program as a part of the Gamechanger Program. On the year, Dupont has donated $60,000.
