GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – It was a magical night at Maranda’s Caring for Families Holiday Shopping Event with Bethany Christian Services at Meijer! Eleven families in need from around the globe enjoyed food, dancing and shopping just in time for the holidays. Kids were able to get new winter boots, a fun book, and an exciting new toy. Families were able to stock up on household essentials, diapers, toiletry items, and more. It was truly a night to remember!
Before the shopping began, families were able to enjoy delicious pizza from Craig’s Cruisers and then watch CARE Ballet perform an excerpt from Twas the Night Before Christmas. Together, everyone was able to get into the spirit of the holiday season!
A BIG thank you to all of the amazing Maranda Community Partners who helped make this event happen! These partners include Ferris State University GR, Fifth Third Bank, Priority Health, Craig’s Cruisers, Milk Means More, Grand Rapids First, and Meijer. Also thank you to Michigan Turkey for being apart of this event. We appreciate everyone’s help making this event so successful!
