Helping HANDS for the Holidays
December 12, 2013
As a tangible demonstration of Christian love during the holidays, HANDS (Helping and Nurturing During Service) a Kuyper student organization, planned a food drive to collect goods for Kids Food Basket. After setting up a donation site in the faculty/staff lounge they spread the news around Kuyper’s surrounding neighborhood. Some Kuyper students came out and joined HANDS members during the drive, as faculty and staff made large contributions of canned and packaged food items.
By organizing this drive a few weeks before Thanksgiving, HANDS provided a reminder to the Kuyper community and the surrounding neighbors of how much God has blessed us while providing them the opportunity to bless others by being able to distribute a truck full of food items to the less fortunate.
HANDS’ theme, to "Love your neighbor as yourself" (Matt 22:39), was fully demonstrated during the Thanksgiving season.
