The Wheeling High School staff recently finished its United Way Contribution Campaign for 2013 with the most money raised of any school in Northwest High School District 214.

Collectively, teachers, administrators and support staff contributed $16,156 to help fund the agencies and programs sponsored by the United Way, more than double the amount raised at any of the other five District 214 schools during the campaign.

Several local restaurants and stores, including Bob Chinn's Crab House, The RAM Restaurant & Brewery, Coopers Hawk, Lou Malnati's Pizzeria, Oakley Sunglasses and Best Salon and Spa, donated to the staff or the cause.

In the past three years the Wheeling High School staff has contributed almost $40,000 to the United Way, whose mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.
