LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The United Way's fundraising campaign is well underway. Thursday, a local restaurant did its part in helping.
Lafayette-area Arni's locations held a Live United Day during the lunch hour.
The United Way Campaign raised money to help 29 separate organizations including: the YMCA, Red Cross and Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Lafayette.
Arni's General Manager Brad Cohen said their partnership with the United Way has been going on for years.
"It started with my dad," Cohen said. "He was a big proponent of United Way and it continues on. It's probably our only major corporate campaign that we'll do."
All Arni's workers wore United Way t-shirts and also gave them out to customers.
The United Way wants to know you "Live United." Wear your t-shirt on October 4, 11, 18, 25 or November 1, 8, 15, 22 and post a picture on your social media sites with the hashtag: #liveunitedlala.
