What is the United Way Student Campaign?
We all know someone who is struggling in our community. Students do too. By hosting a Student Campaign, students and faculty will learn information about United Way funded programs and initiatives that are focused on improving education, health and wellness, income, and basic needs for the people of Montcalm-Ionia Counties. Through a Student Campaign, students will learn about our community’s resources and where to turn to when and if they or someone they know needs assistance. All raised funds will be locally used to support Montcalm and Ionia county residents. Together, students will increase their desire to give, advocate and volunteer to make their hometown a better place to live and work.
