The United Way of the Valley and Greater Utica Area is kicking off it's annual fundraising campaign, and this year's theme will be a little different.This year's fundraiser will not feature one single Campaign Chairperson. Instead, the United Way is making everyone who wants to get involved a chairperson.

The United Way recognized that with just one figurehead chair and a team, there is a lot of burden on just one person to raise funds. This year by making you the chair, the United Way is hoping to make fundraising a little easier and more fun.

This is United Way of the Valley and Greater Utica Area Executive Director Brenda Episcopo.
