Preston Hollow resident Jennifer Sampson, who happens to be the president and CEO of United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, helped kick off the organization’s annual “Live United Day” campaign on Oct. 1. More than 1,500 volunteers (1,200 of those from Plano-based PepsiCo/Frito-Lay) logged a total of 5,000 hours of good works.

United Way is in its last year of a five-year effort to raise $313 million for the community.

Sampson joined Mayor Mike Rawlings and Frito-Lay North America president and CEO Tom Greco — who is acting as United Way’s 2014 local campaign chair — for a rally at Victory Plaza and an interview with WFAA’s Greg Fields.

    My company left the United Way a few years ago, and now employees get to personally select the charity of their choice for their contribution. A win/win for everybody, and participation has increased as has the giving.
