The United Way of Trumbull County kicked off its 2013 Pacesetter Campaign on Thursday.

Last year, donors helped the non-profit group raise $805,000. GM Lordstown and UAW Locals 1112 and 1714 presented a check for more than $113,000 they raised for the United Way 2012 campaign.

Trumbull County United Way President and CEO Ginny Pasha said an extra incentive is added to this year’s campaign for donors. A special drawing will held for anyone donating $156 or more.

“We are celebrating our 90th year of support for Trumbull County so our fundraising campaign is how United Way is able to meet the needs of our community,” said Pasha. “We are happy this year to be able to offer the added incentive  for a chance to win a Cruze Turbo Diesel, which is brand new and made by our friends right here in Lordstown, Ohio.”

After the check presentation, teams of volunteers fanned out into the community to provide chore services to area seniors.

Trumbull County hopes to raise $845,000 in 2013.
