Hand2Hand Ministries

By April 16, 2021September 1st, 2021No Comments

Hand2Hand Ministries is a resource for children facing hunger over the weekend. Healthy food is provided for these children so they have a greater opportunity to succeed academically, emotionally, and physically. Each week, a backpack filled with food for the weekend is placed in the child’s locker for them to take home.

GREAT NEWS!!! Hand2Hand is back in Faith Church!!! Over the summer we moved from City on a Hill back into Faith! It sure does feel really good to be back!! I’m excited to bring new and exciting ways to get involved with H2H! We will be supporting Lincoln Elementary, Cityside Middle School and The Lighthouse Juvenile Justice Institute in Holland. Our first weekend food bag will go home on Thursday September 17.

We will be offering 2 time slots 2 times a month to help pack. You can choose either 10:00 a.m. or 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. Click on the links below. Space is limited to 6 people per time. Packings will be held in the H2H pantry which can be found off the Gathering Area.

Lincoln Deliverer
I am looking for someone who can deliver once a month on a Thursday morning. You must be able to lift heavier bins full of food. You can partner up with someone to make the load lighter. Contact Amy for more details.

If you have any questions please reach out to Amy Kleinheksel at akleinheksel@faithrc.org. Thanks!
