Doing More. Together.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – We love when organizations partner together to benefit our community. John Ball Zoo and Ottawa ISD, as well as others, are doing just that through the Doing More Together initiative. It’s all about giving kids real life experiences and to show how working together can make an impact.
