HOLLAND, MI – While an overwhelming number of small businesses in Michigan are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to understand that most are still accepting online orders that will be filled in May and going forward. These Michigan businesses, many of which are family-owned, depend on on-line orders to sustain them through times of turmoil. Many are also big supporters of charitable organizations.
To that end, The Holland Bowl Mill is doing something special to help the community for the month of April by donating 5% of all online sales to Hand2Hand, an organization that provides much-needed food for school-aged children over the weekends when school isn’t in session.
Hand2Hand partners with local churches and schools to provide a backpack filled with supplemental food that bridges the gap of weekend hunger. Food sent home consists of breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner items, often sent home with a recipe card included.
The program nourishes more than physical needs. It provides consistency, love, and demonstrates to all within a home that people do care, and ultimately, that God cares. For more information, people may visit www.h2hkids.org.
“We’ve been a part of this generous community since 1924 and our customers have been very loyal,” says Kory Gier of Holland Bowl Mill. “We manufacture custom utensils, cutting boards, wooden bowls, and other unique items, and offer free engraving on the bottom of all products. We also have gift certificates for friends and family to use for any occasion. We are happy to partner with Hand2Hand and donate 5% of all online sales in April to help the children in the community.”
“People are spending a lot of time in their homes during the COVID-19 shutdowns and it’s always best to remind yourself what home really feels like. The family dinner table continues to stand the test of time because we can all count on coming together in trying times for something wholesome, as well as to count our blessings. We want the kids who benefit from Hand2Hand to feel comfortable in their homes, too.”
