UW Campaign at halfway point.

We continue to make good progress on our United Way Campaign. Yesterday, Nov. 11, we hit 18.8% participation. Thank you to those is 119 donors who have pledged $28,966.36! We are over halfway (64.4%) of our $45,000 goal.

Why $45,000? On top of his regular annual pledge, Dr. Ender will pledge an additional $500 if our campaign exceeds $45,000 in total dollars raised, and he’ll pledge another $500 if our campaign reaches 35% employee participation!

$45,000 is a lot of money, we can accomplish this together for $1 per week. Your dollar matters, because with $1/week a food pantry will purchase 325 pounds of food to help feed hungry families, giving them the stamina to be productive at work, at school and in life. Currently, Heart of West Michigan UW funds food pantries serving over 40,000 households.
