GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — United Way of Greater Lafayette is trying to raise $5.6 million this year during its campaign.

It kicked off Thursday at the North End Community Center.

The goal of the organization is to get the next generation ready to make an impact within United Way.

The 2019 campaign chair, Jessica Rebmann, said she wants to get 3,000 people to donate $2 a week until the drive is over.

She said donating, no matter how small or big, can change a person's life.

"Making a difference in another person's life, I think, is more rewarding and meaningful and enduring than anything you can buy or experience," said Rebmann

Several local businesses participate in Greater Lafayette's United Way.

The campaign runs until November.
