Do you know a dedicated volunteer or group of volunteers? Would you like them to receive recognition for their commitment to our community? United Way of Ottawa and Allegan Counties invites community members to nominate individuals and/or groups for Volunteer Stars recognition during National Volunteer Week (April 17-23). Complete your nomination by filling out the form above and submitting it via email to Shannon at sbehm@ottawaunitedway.org for Ottawa County nominations and Kessie at kkarg@acuw.org for Allegan County nominations.

Volunteer Stars will be recognized during National Volunteer Week through local media, and nominees will receive a certificate and letter from United Way congratulating them on their service. For more information, including how to locate or post volunteer opportunities on United Way’s website, contact Shannon at sbehm@ottawaunitedway.org for Ottawa County or Kessie at kkarg@acuw.org for Allegan County.
