Like so many pursuits and businesses around the world, sports in West Michigan have been sidelined due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They’ll return in due time, but the needs of our community remain and have become far more pronounced for too many of our fellow citizens.

The Grand Rapids Griffins, West Michigan Whitecaps, Grand Rapids Drive, and West Michigan Sports Commission are united in our commitment to those throughout the 616 and beyond, so we’ve joined forces as One Team For West Michigan.

Superstars, starters, role players and a deep bench are all crucial to championship teams, and in this time of uncertainly and struggle, the same holds true for our society. Everyone can contribute in some way toward making our little slice of the world a better place, through words and deeds both great and small.

For those who are able, we ask you to join our effort and support the outstanding organizations who continue to serve the most vulnerable in our community. Please consider volunteering with or making a donation to a few that are closest to our hearts by following the links below. Thank you.

We will endure. We will win.
We are West Michigan.

The more difficult the victory, the greater the happiness in winning.” – Pele
