Turning Old Electronics Into Food For Local Children

Hand2Hand logo hungry children

At Bekins, we strive to use the latest and best technology to help our customers. However, we still use the “old” electronics to help our community. Our employees recently bought the “old” electronics for a reduced price, with all of the proceeds going to Hand2Hand. Our IT Department and our employees raised $1,030 to help local children!

Hand2Hand is a ministry that works primarily in West Michigan to provide food to school children. Every Friday, a volunteer discreetly places a backpack in a child’s locker full of food for the weekend. The backpacks go to children who are at risk of not getting enough food at home while they are away from school.

This year they are working with:

  • 5,200 children who need backpacks filled with food
  • 151 schools who place the backpacks in the lockers
  • 91 churches that supply the volunteers and pack the backpacks
  • 4,200 volunteers

A PARENT TOLD HAND2HAND:

“LIVING PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK IS DIFFICULT FOR EVERYONE BUT WHEN YOU HAVE CHILDREN AND YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO GIVE THEM SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS A SNACK IT IS DIFFICULT. HAND2HAND HELPS ME TO GIVE MY CHILDREN WELL ROUNDED MEALS.”
