The needs in Kent County are complex, but helping people is not. Supporting United Way through financial gifts, speaking out on important issues and lending your time and talent are simple yet powerful ways to help better our community. In 2013, United Way invested $10 million in Kent County through 60 agency providers, community collaborations and United Way programs: 2-1-1, Schools of Hope, Kent County Tax Credit Coalition and the Volunteer Center.
Our United Way campaign runs through November 3 — and don’t forget about our campaign incentives:
- Employees who return their United Way pledge form by November 3 will be entered to win a GRCC centennial sweatshirt. There is no donation required to be part of this raffle.
- However, employees who donate $100 or more to this year’s campaign are eligible for two more prizes! The first four winners will receive two tickets to the GRCC’s 100th anniversary performance, “Open Door,” on November 7 and 8. The fifth winner will receive a $100 Meijer gift card.
- If you are thinking it may be time for a new car, any Heart of West Michigan United Way donor who makes a new undesignated gift of $50 or more, or increases his or her total 2013 gift by $50 or more will be automatically entered for a chance to win a new car from Fox Honda!
