KISRA Joins BetterTogetherCWV to Support West Virginians Impacted by Economic Hardship Related to Co

The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted the world and challenged Charleston to new levels. During this time of unprecedented uncertainty, Better Together CWV is committed to putting people first by providing the support necessary to ensure our unemployed service workers and/or service workers subjected to reduced earnings due to decreased hours to adapt to the ever-changing circumstances COVID-19 has presented. 

 The COVID-19 Better Together CWV Fund will help in real ways by: 

  • Providing assistance for service workers facing unforeseen hardships by ensuring food, housing or utility assistance.​

The residents of Charleston pride themselves on neighborly love and support in times of need.  The Better Together CWV Fund is committed to being a bridge for our displaced community members now and in the immediate future. 

This initiative is led by the 10 in 10, Inc. a 501c3 charitable organization (FEIN 83-3716062), committed to showcasing the hidden jewels of our city, attracting others to call her home and participating in community initiatives such as Better Together CWV (registered trade name of 10 in 10, Inc.).  All donations are made payable to 10 in 10, Inc. and tax deductible. 

The concept for Better Together CWV originated from a simple conversation between friends (Tony Paranzino, Jennifer Pharr, Bernie Layne and Harry Bell) with a resounding theme, ‘What can we do?, How can we help?’  This conversation has grown to an initiative to help combat the economic strain from COVID19; Better Together CWV. 

The Better Together CWV Advisory Committee is comprised of local business owners from a variety of backgrounds: retail, restaurant, legal, nonprofit, technical and real estate sales. The advisory committee is committed to reviewing each application, making timely decisions; understanding the importance to assist Charlestonians during a very sudden and trying time. 

The disruption caused by COVID19 may last for several months. The Better Together CWV Advisory Committee will review applications and provide assistance as long as there is a need and funding. 

Awarded funds for displaced workers will be administered with the help of KISRA.

The outpouring of compassion and support is greatly appreciated. Apply for assistance > https://www.bettertogethercwv.org/apply-for-assistance

As always,
