TERRE HAUTE -- Those who will be looking for United Way of the Wabash Valley representatives Gary Morris, Marla DeHart, Rick Burger and Troy Fears on Friday, Jan. 16, will be able to spot them on the roof of Baesler's Market.

The United Way of the Wabash Valley Campaign Co-Chairs, incoming board president and executive director will be on the roof of the grocery store until the United Way reaches its goal during "United Day for United Way."

The four will venture to the rooftop of the store at 6 a.m., Friday, Jan. 16, and will remain there until the day's goal of $10,000 is met.
