Meridian, Miss. The United Way of East Mississippi announced another level in its quest to raise $1 million this year.

The campaign will run until the end of February. Those who haven't yet donated are encouraged to do so now.
"We are going to make our million dollar goal, and we are so proud of everyone choosing to be a community hero," said Dr. Charlotte Tabereaux.
