The 2013 United Way Campaign is now officially underway with a kick off luncheon at the Abilene Civic Center. The event was sponsored by United Supermarkets and Pepsi.
The United Way helps more than 27 local programs each year. The United Way Pacesetters were announced at the luncheon. These were 21 companies who ran their campaigns early and collectively raised 441,000.
That money will go toward their goal of raising two million dollars for the 2013 United Way campaign.
