A long-standing partnership between Grand Valley and the Heart of West Michigan United Way continues with the annual faculty and staff campaign drive. The drive began this week and concludes November 1.

In the coming days, faculty and staff members across campus will receive information about United Way’s efforts in West Michigan and how Grand Valley’s donations help support its mission.

David Bair, professor of education and a member of the campaign committee, said he was proud to be a faculty member at a university that embraces its responsibility in community engagement.

“GVSU has grown and developed in partnership with the West Michigan community, and our participation in the United Way campaign is an expression of the ongoing commitment to our community,” said Bair.

More than 67,000 people received help in 2020, thanks to the services provided by the Heart of West Michigan United Way.
