Surveying a generous community- mlive.com: "A recent survey conducted by the Perspectives Consulting Group in Paw Paw said 51.5 percent of Kalamazoo area residents made cash charitable donations last year; the average for all of Michigan was 57.7 percent. In addition, 38 percent of those from the Kalamazoo area who were surveyed volunteered during the last year, compared to 43 percent statewide who said they volunteered. These findings were a bit of a surprise to us, since they run counter to just about everything we've ever experienced, heard or written about Kalamazoo. And we know we're not imagining things."
