United Way fundraising campaign kickoff is Friday

Lake Area United Way will hold their annual fundraising campaign at 8 a.m. Friday in the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. The announcement will mark the sixth year the organization has combined its annual campaign kick-off with the Day of Caring volunteer event.

A primary component of the annual fundraising campaign is the workplace campaign. Companies which utilize a workplace campaign engage a payroll deduction process and recognize this as an excellent method for employees to budget their charitable giving.

The volunteers will depart for their adopted projects immediately following the kick-off breakfast and spend the day in volunteer services in the Muskogee and Tahlequah communities.
