United Way 2008 Campaign Drive Underway

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The United Way of Central Carolinas kicked off its volunteer and fundraising campaign Friday morning.

The volunteer campaign includes the "Raising a Reader" project.

This morning volunteers filled a thousand book bags with book to be distributed through the community.

The United Way is not setting a fund raising goal this year because of current economic conditions and controversy over the group's leadership.
