United Way Kicks Off 2008 Pacesetter Campaign
By Ryan Stotts, La Crosse Tribune, Wis.
Jul. 24--ONALASKA, Wis. -- Great Rivers United Way kicked off its Pacesetter campaign with a big show of support.
Employees from the participating companies were able to visit some of United Way's agencies -- such as the Coulee Council on Addiction, the American Red Cross and the Coulee Children's Center -- where they helped paint, clean and perform other community service projects.
"We're going there to see where our dollars are going," said State Bank of Onalaska Community Banking Manager Jodi Grams. She said she planned on visiting several locations throughout the day.
"It's overwhelming what we get to do and the people we get to meet and help out," she said.
