Donation totals for Grand Valley’s 2013 United Way campaign were the second highest in a decade. Results for the campaign were announced at the President’s Thank You Breakfast December 3.
The campaign report showed a donation total of $165,459, a slight drop from the total in 2012. Both the response rate for completed United Way forms and the donation rate were also slightly down, to 75 and 49.9 percent respectively.
President Haas made his 'world-famous' pancakes and thanked the campaign committee and captains for their hard work. United Way co-chairs Sue Sloop and Steve Lipnicki thanked captains for encouraging their coworkers to return the forms to help support the United Way in Kent, Ottawa, and other West Michigan counties.
