Feed the Community
Feed the Community is more than just a catchy slogan. It is a call to action. Families in West Michigan that were already struggling, have been met with even greater challenges in these past months. Many are struggling to afford the basic necessity of food. The need is real.
Warm hearts coming together can make a real difference. Our drive this year to Feed the Community is a real solution to help those in need. It’s so much more than a meal. It’s a way to remind our neighbors they’re not alone in difficult times, and that their community cares about them.
You can help. A $5 donation, plus our matching donation could provide 40 meals!
Join us in caring for our neighbors in need by making a donation now through November 30 to one of our local charity partners below. Every dollar given – up to a total of $4,000 – will be matched by United Bank.
