CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — United Way of Franklin County took the first steps toward this year’s campaign drive, as “pacesetter companies” gathered at the United Way office to prepare for and kick off their campaign.

The Pacesetter Campaign will lead the effort into the 2011 United Way campaign to raise the first dollars toward meeting the goal, which will be announced when the campaign kicks off in September.

2011 campaign chairwoman Pam Anderson and Pacesetter chairman Joe Zmitrovich welcomed the “Big 10” companies that will come together to raise funds for the first leg of the campaign. Pacesetter companies for this year are Boyer and Ritter, CPAs; F&M Trust; Franklin County Literacy Council; Lutheran Social Services; M&T Bank; Orrstown Bank; Patriot Federal Credit Union; Target Distribution Center; Tower Bank; and UPS.

Pacesetter companies usually raise more than 20 percent of the campaign goal before the larger community is asked to give, according to a news release.

The United Way of Franklin County campaign for 2011 will officially kick off Sept. 14 at Orchards Restaurant. Anyone interested in getting involved in the effort can call the United Way office at 717-262-0015 or go to  www.uwfcpa.org.
