In a year like no other, communities across the nation were faced with unimaginable challenges as COVID-19 quickly shocked the world. While the pandemic impacted everyone uniquely, it also forced communities like ours to share a sense of commonality as we faced the unimaginable together. In many cases, families took on new roles as schools, businesses and everyday life as we knew it took on a new normal.

While so much has changed over the past year, this disruption presents an opportunity for us to take a step back and reflect on how we as a community came together to support one another through this trying time. On behalf of the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation, I would like to share my deep appreciation to all our donors who continue to give generously.
