August 16, 2010

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Ten companies will lead the 2010 United Way Pacesetter Campaign, which sets United Way of Franklin County's annual campaign into motion.

Noel Purdy, executive director of the Chambersburg Chamber Foundation, is serving as chairman for the Pacesetter effort. Participating companies begin their early fundraising efforts, according to a news release.

This year's Pacesetter Companies include Boyer and Ritter, F&M Trust, Franklin County Literacy Council, Lutheran Home Care and Hospice, M&T Bank, Orrstown Bank, Patriot Federal Credit Union, United Parcel Service, Target Distribution Center, and Tower Bank.

"The Pacesetter Campaign is truly representative of the larger campaign and demonstrates that all of us, working together, can make a big difference," Purdy said in the news release.

Although each company selects its own timing for internal campaign efforts, the Pacesetter portion of the United Way Campaign runs through the month of August and into early September, completing just days in advance of the formal campaign kick-off, which is scheduled for Sept. 15. At the campaign kick-off, the goal of campaign will be announced, along with the raising of the Pacesetter figure, which provides a starting point and a boost for the rest of the campaign.
