Community Involvement

What They Do

1 in 7 Michigan children deals with food insecurity every year—around 345,000 kids. Hand2Hand helps to reduce those numbers. They are an amazing local organization that provides nutritious food to children for them to take home after school. While over 80,000 children in West Michigan receive free or reduced lunches at school every weekday, many of the students don’t have enough food to sustain themselves all weekend long. 

How We Help

We contribute every month to help end child hunger in our community. The funds donated to Hand2Hand go to the actual meals, food transportation, and distribution. Many volunteers, including members of local churches and businesses, come together to ensure children don’t go hungry.

If you’re interested, you can donate to Hand2Hand or learn about volunteer opportunities.

What They Do

The overall mission at Family Promise Ministries is to help people get out of homelessness. They provide emergency shelter and prevention services but also offer true, lasting stabilization through housing opportunities by supplying them with manufactured homes in their local area. This gives families a much-needed fresh start, allowing them to build their lives in a safe, comfortable space. 

Family Promise Ministries has helped over 4,000 families, with 90% of them finding new housing. Upon learning about their mission, we knew we needed to help in any way possible. 

How We Help

We are blessed to be able to occasionally donate homes to Family Promise Ministries’ mission. We also partake in moving homes for them at no charge to accommodate structural changes at the park whenever the need arises. With the additional space we have in one of our barns, we are able to provide them safe space to store their supplies. 

Being able to support this organization allows us to provide beautiful, durable housing structures to as many people as we can, and we thank them for their efforts to end homelessness.

If you’re interested, you can donate to Family Promise Ministries or learn about volunteer opportunities—they have at least 150 every week that aid local families!

Company community involvement can leave a long-lasting impact, and if we are able to positively affect the lives of even one family or child, we are beyond thrilled. Giving is truly at the core of our family-owned and operated business

Investing back into the people of West Michigan can create endless opportunities for those in need, and the chance to be part of that motivates us. We will continue to make daily strides towards cementing this legacy with the help of our wonderful, compassionate community and quality modular and manufactured homes.
