RAVENNA, Mich. (WZZM) - United Way of the Lakeshore kicked off its fall fundraising campaign this year with a long bike ride. 18 people rode 100 miles and another 11 rode 50 miles. The group found others to sponsor their ride and donate to the United Way.
This year the agency has set a goal just over $3 million. New donors and those who increase their weekly support will be entered into a drawing for a new Harley Davidson motorcycle.
Christine Robere, President of the United Way of the Lakeshore says, "this is the time when we ask people to give-- give back what they can to support agencies and programs that provide services in education, income, and health."
United Way of the Lakeshore Day of Caring starts at 8:30 Friday morning. 800 volunteers will work together to improve Heritage Landing and Wesley Park.
