The Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga is among many organizations that have stepped up to help organize and raise financial support for the families of the victims of Thursday's brutal attack, which killed five people and left two others injured.

"Chattanooga has been rocked and the lives of countless individuals and families were changed," said Pete Cooper, president of the Community Foundation.
