"Eighty-five percent of what you give goes directly to your designated 501©(3). And, without designation, your contributions are allocated to our area's most urgent needs," said Thomas W. Krise, PLU president.

United Way of America is a non-profit organization that works with more than 1,200 local United Way offices throughout the country in a coalition of charitable organizations to pool efforts in fundraising and support.

"I LIVE UNITED by working with and donating through my workplace," said Rick Eastman, co-campaign coordinator. "The PLU community is committed to the belief that we can make a difference by participating in strong, effective, life-changing charities such as United Way."

Pledges this year can be made through United Way's secure campaign website on eWay using a provided campaign code, username and password. Donations can be given as a one-time gift or donated through payroll deductions (deductions will begin January 2013).

The campaign runs through November.
