Pacesetter campaign begins for Centre County United Way

Centre County United Way kicked off its annual Pacesetter campaign Monday at Celebration Hall.

According to a news release, representatives from 31 local companies who run their United Way campaigns over the summer attended the lunch meeting, which focused on increasing participation among company employees and partner agency staff.

Pacesetter companies will hold their employee campaigns over the summer and announce the collective results in August, according to the news release.

CCUW announced June 10 that Centre Volunteers in Medicine is the newest health and human services partner agency, which will make the organization eligible to receive United Way funds, Executive Director Tammy Gentzel said in a news release.

Prior to CVIM, the last addition was Tides in 2009.
