POP UP GIVING! You decide where the funds go
United Way of Southwest Michigan invites you to attend our inaugural “Pop Up Giving” event on Thursday, October 18, from 5-7 p.m. at Haymarket Taproom in Bridgman. The event is sponsored by American Electric Power - AEP, D.C. Cook Nuclear Power Plant.
You can Win a Car!
To help incentivize this year’s campaign, United Way partnered with Tyler Automotive to provide a car challenge. Donors who gave $156 (or $3 per week) were automatically entered into a drawing to win a two-year lease on a sub-compact vehicle from Tyler Automotive. For every additional $100 contributed, donors received an additional entry into the drawing.

In February 2018, several communities across Southwest Michigan suffered severe flooding due to intense rain and melting snow. Many families were displaced from their homes - some temporarily and some permanently. But local volunteers stepped up to help.
