Chattanooga United Way more than one-third of way to goal

The United Way of Greater Chattanooga has surpassed more than one-third of its $12 million stretch goal in its 2012 campaign.

As of Tuesday, the organization had collected $4.5 million, officials said.

“This has been a whirlwind campaign year,” campaign Chairwoman Alison Lebovitz said. “We want everyone to know how involved and vital United Way is ... and we’ve worked hard to help people understand the cumulative effect of both this work and United Way’s investment in our communities.”

The local organization set a two-tiered objective at its August kickoff — an $11.6 million target goal and the $12 stretch goal. It has satisfied its goal for 90 straight years.
