Lindy Riley will be lead the United Way's City Division during the 2013 campaign, Campaign Chair Mike Hopkins has announced.
Riley has been an active part of United Way campaigns in the past and is a long-time United Way volunteer.
Riley and City Division volunteers have accepted the challenge of raising funds that will help more than 28,000 Greene County residents in 2014.
Hopkins commented on Riley's leadership, saying, "We are thrilled to have Lindy as City Division Chair this year, and we couldn't have chosen a better person with more respect in our community.
"Lindy will focus on reaching people in Greeneville who may be retired or would not be part of local company United Way campaigns; these people may not have been asked to participate in the past
"She is committed, energetic, and genuinely cares for our community.
"I feel confident that Lindy will find many people who simply have not been asked to give and want to assist those in our community who look to us for help," Hopkins said.
Riley responded, "I have been involved with United Way for many years and consider it an honor to lead the City Division this year.
"Through the 23 agencies supported by United Way, so many lives are directly or indirectly touched.
"I trust that retired people will respond positively when my volunteers and I ask them to become part of a campaign to help our neighbors be able to enjoy a richer life."
Riley has been involved in the Greene County community in a variety of capacities.
She retired from Takoma Regional Hospital in 2011, where she was responsible for the Takoma Hospital Foundation and coordinated volunteers.
She is a member and past president of the Rotary Club of Greeneville, member of the Greene County Partnership and a Green Coat Ambassador, member and past president of the Andrew Johnson Women's Club, president of Friends of the Library, and a board member of the Andrew Johnson Heritage Association, the Food Bank, and the Takoma Hospital Foundation.
