Greater Ottawa County United Way welcomes Jacquelyn Bennett as the new Students Live United (SLU) Program Coordinator.

Jacquelyn says, “I am excited to be directly involved with high school students who are passionate about making an impact in their communities, as well grow as individuals through volunteering.”
