Helping Hands: Bekins Employees Pack Lunches With Hand2Hand

Bekins Packing For Hand2Hand

Our employees found more than one way to “Be Kind” recently. Eleven Bekins employees volunteered to pack snacks for Hand2Hand.

Not only did they help pack hundreds of snack bags for children who need it, Bekins will donate money to Hand2Hand in honor of each employee who volunteered.

The donation is a part of our BeKind program, which supports Bekins employees who volunteer in the community.

WHAT IS HAND2HAND?

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 plan to work with:

  • 4600 children who need backpacks filled with food
  • 145 schools who place the backpacks in the lockers
  • 82 churches that supply the volunteers and pack the backpacks

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.”

FINDING THE BEST APPLIANCES – LEARNING FROM SERVICE

Best Appliances - Service Knowledge

At Bekins, we like to say that we are a service company that sells, installs and repairs appliances and electronics. However, our Appliance Repair Technicians serve an extra purpose for our customers. We use the knowledge we gain from our Service Repair Technicians to pick the best appliances for our customers.

WHEN BUYING APPLIANCES – CONSULT THE EXPERTS

Appliances change rapidly. Why not consult the experts before investing in products that you expect to last decades?

Our Appliance Professionals are experts on the latest appliances and know what’s on the horizon. They know which questions to ask to help you choose the product that works best for you. They have also helped thousands of other people pick and install new appliances, so they can use those experiences to benefit you.

NO BETTER EXPERTS THAN REPAIR TECHS AND INSTALLERS

You will only find the best products in our showrooms. How do we pick the best? We make thousands of house calls each year. Our Appliance Installers see how an appliance fits and works in the home, then our Service Repair Technicians see which brands constantly need repair and which brands last.

We also know which brands help fix issues that can arise over the years, and which brands expect you to just buy a new one.

Our experts even consult with the brands we carry to help them improve their products. We tell them what works well and what needs to change. So we see which brands truly care about your needs.

WE CAN SPOT TRUE INNOVATION

Some new appliance features sound nice, but do not provide true value to your life.

However, brands like Thermador provide innovation that truly helps.

One example, their patented Star Burner. It not only looks cool, but it provides more heat to your pan during cooking. Instead of a flame wrapped around the edge, the star shaped burner lets more heat reach the interior. It is also elevated to make it easier to clean.
