Hand2Hand of Cornerstone

1 in 5 children in West Michigan doesn’t have enough food, especially over the weekends. That’s why there’s Hand2Hand of Cornerstone – a ministry that gets food to over 200 kids during the school year who need it for each weekend!

Hand2Hand

Hand2Hand of Cornerstone exists to pray for and provide weekend food assistance to kids at our Hand2Hand partner schools. Cornerstone is currently serving Vanguard Charter Academy, Bowen Elementary and Explorer Elementary (new Kentwood School).

We are not able to serve students at Campus Elementary at this time, per the district’s directive. We’re hoping to start later this year. We’ll keep you posted!

Sign Up Here

Thank you so much for donating these! To make packing go faster, would you do us a HUGE favor? Please double-bag the bags, then fold each double bag individually. (See photos below.) This saves so much time when we pack for the students!

Donation items can be dropped off:

During Sunday services at any Cornerstone Church Campus.

OR

During regular business hours at our 84th St. Campus – 1675 84th St., Caledonia, MI 49316 (Mon-Thu 8:30am-4:30pm and Friday 8:30am-12:30pm).

Due to store limits on the number of items people can purchase, like canned vegetables, we might need multiple people to purchase the maximum number of items we need. Email Erin Brachman, erinb@cornerstonemi.org to be part of this team!

Pray for God to provide all that is needed to serve the kids each week. Please also pray for the children and their families.
