Pacesetters are selected workplace campaigns that are asked to set the pace for the annual campaign by using a minimum of 6 of the Top 10 Campaign Best Practices and conducting their campaign in the month of August, prior to the United Way Campaign Kickoff. Pacesetters receive customized training from United Way staff, recognition through media (traditional, social, and digital/web), and recognition at the annual Campaign Kickoff.

Pacesetter Campaigns stand out as community leaders who foster an understanding among employees of how an investment in United Way of Northeast Louisiana helps people and strengthens our community.

To all of our Pacesetters, thank you for your commitment to supporting the work we do in Northeast Louisiana! You model what it means to LIVE UNITED.
We hope to see your smiling faces on
Tuesday, September 14th!

A School Uniform Drive

That's a wrap for our Ready4School Uniform Drive!

We're so excited to announce that a total of approximately...

pieces of clothing and other items were donated! 

This total includes pants, belts, socks, shirts, underwear, under shirts, and backpacks to be distributed to local elementary school students.

Special thanks to Chase Bank and Scott Powerline & Utility Equipment Company for their generous contributions to this effort!
VolunteerUNITED Spotlight:
Lincoln Parish School Board

Our friends from The Pupil Appraisal Group/Lincoln Parish School Board reached out to us to coordinate a volunteer project for their team.

Due to the large size of their group, Rolling Hills Ministries was the best fit for them to focus their volunteer efforts. As these awesome volunteers helped sort clothing items, they were also able to focus on team building!

LPSB, thank you for showing your community what it means to #LIVEUNITED!

Be sure to tune in to Facebook most Fridays for a VolunteerUNITED spotlight!
