Operation United is back

GRCC is partnering once again with Operation United to complete yardwork, landscaping, and minor outdoor home repair for veterans and active military families here in Kent County. Groups of volunteers will be matched with a veteran and then complete work at their home on event day. 

This is a part of the Heart of West Michigan United Way Month of Caring service activity. The 2018 Leadership Institute cohort, better known as InteGReatCC, had a great experience supporting Operation United in May 2019.

Watch their news appearance!

And this exciting and rewarding volunteer service opportunity back this year:

Friday September 24, 2021
9:00am -1:00pm
A veteran’s home in the GR area

Full time employees can earn up to four hours of professional development time volunteering for this service activity.

This experience is limited to the first 24 full time employees.

If you would like to volunteer, please obtain your supervisor’s approval via Leave of Absence form and complete the 2021 Operation United Registration Form.


Thank you! This service employee engagement opportunity is brought to you through a collaboration of InteGReatCC (2018 Leadership Institute cohort) and HR. Please contact angelasalinas@grcc.edu, dianesmith2@grcc.edu or abennett@grcc.edu for more information and any questions you may have.
