OTTAWA COUNTY, MI (WHTC) -- The Ottawa County United Way is almost two-thirds of the way towards the goal of $2.3 million, having raised nearly $1.4 million. With 95 workplace campaigns in and counted, campaign officials say that this year’s campaign is about three percent ahead of last year at this time. The campaign has about 11 weeks left to reach their goal. Campaign Chair Phil Koning says that, “Thanks to our generous sponsors, anyone who gives or pledges $1 per week for the first time, or who increases their previous pledge by $52, will be entered to win a one-week round-trip for two from Grand Rapids to an all-inclusive resort in Jamaica or Mexico.” If your workplace doesn’t give through United Way, visit ottawaunitedway.org to find out how you can help.
