Have you heard about the wonderful non-profit Hand2Hand? In 2008 founder Cheri Honderd recognized a community injustice: elementary school children were at risk of going hungry over the weekends. She started Hand2Hand who delivers nutritious food to students over the weekends and on extended school breaks by mobilizing churches, schools and businesses to join together, providing hope and an opportunity to thrive. Currently, Hand2Hand serves over 8,000 children that attend over 200 school in midwestern Michigan. According to Feeding America, there are over 345,000 children in Michigan that are struggling with hunger, so this is just the tip of the iceberg and we want to help…and you can too!
During December, the month of giving, we are collecting items on Hand2Hand’s wishlist. Anyone who donates a food item on the wishlist will get a free tire rotation added to their account with us!
Items on their wishlist include:
- EZ Mac Cups
- Fruit Cups (100% Fruit Juice)
- Meat Sticks
- Shelf Stable Yogurt (Go Go Squeeze Yogurt)
- Pasta Noodles
- Canned Pasta Sauce (no glass jars)
- Canned Corn
- Canned Chicken
- Canned Soup
- Pasta Side Kits
Please note: all food items must be non-expired with 3-6 months dating as regulations prohibit them from distributing expired food.
We are so thankful for Hand2Hand and all the work they are doing within our community and are honored to be a part of the solution in keeping kids in our own neighborhoods from going hungry.
