United Way close to goal

The United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley is getting close to reaching its $6.8 million goal.

So, far the campaign has raised $6,713,170 in pledges. That's 98.7 percent.

The campaign has already received more money in pledges than any United Way campaign in history and several companies have not announced their donation.

"We're very optimistic," said United Way President Scott D. Ferguson.
