Some gifts are small, some gifts are large, but the ones that come from the heart are the greatest gifts of all!
It’s that fun time of year to be thinking about what to buy for family and friends and I love how almost 4,300 kids experience the gift of food every weekend throughout the school year through Hand2Hand.
As one student discovered her bag of food for the first time, it happened to be her birthday. She ran to her teacher and said, “Someone left me a present of food for my birthday!” The teacher said, “You will have that present EVERY Friday, not just on your birthday!” To which the student replied, “This is the best present EVER!”
Hand2Hand continues to be a movement of love and generosity and I am amazed at all who join and give from their hearts. We have received many gifts of time, talents, and treasures all year so that we can feed more kids and we are forever grateful.
From every child to every adult who has given gifts from their heart this year to assure 4,300 kids are delivered hope each weekend and are given breakfast, snack, lunch, and dinner food, THANK YOU!!
As we celebrate the greatest gift of all, Jesus, I am especially thankful that He brings love, light, joy, salvation, and life into our world. It is in His name we serve and love kids, and our hope is that He is seen and known through our work in West Michigan.
He truly is the best gift of all! Merry Christmas!
