Please consider giving a $60 gift card to enable a foster family or caseworker to purchase a  personalized gift for one (or more) Bethany foster children! (Deadline is Wed, Nov 25.)



     1. Send an e-mail to Nancy Miller at containing the following information: 

        a.  Your name, address, and phone number 

        b. The number of $60 gift cards you will purchase. (If a $30.00 gift works better for you, please feel free to do that instead.) 


      2. Buy your gift cards at Target, Meijer, or Walmart.  


    3. Enclose each gift card in a Christmas card for the foster parents. Please do not sign the card or seal the envelope. 


      4. Attach a note to each Christmas card with your name on it and the dollar value of the gift card. (We will remove this before delivering the cards to Bethany.) 


      5. Deliver your card by WEDNESDAY, NOV. 25 to the CMC receptionist (Mon-Thurs 9am – 3:30pm), Information Center on Sundays, or to Nancy Miller’s home at 140 E. 29th St., Holland. (If they are not home, please place your cards in the labeled box just inside the garage.) 


Thank you for being willing to adapt to this new process and to help provide a very special  Christmas for Bethany's foster children!

Hand2Hand is striving to fill the gap of weekend hunger for many children in the Holland area. Currently Hand2Hand at CMC  is serving 286 students per week at six schools.

Please keep this ministry and the children we serve in your prayers. If you would like more info or would like to get involved, please contact Cindy Bosman at
