The holidays are a season for giving, and thanks to Greater Ottawa County United Way there's plenty of ways to give back to the community.
One way to help out people in the community is to donate money to the Help and Hope Campaign. For just $52, that will provide 208 meals or 13 days of heat to a family in need.
