GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) – Maranda has once again teamed up with several businesses and organizations to help some families in West Michigan who might not otherwise have as much this holiday season. Maranda joined forces with Bethany Christian Services, Meijer, Craig’s Cruisers,Ferris State University, Fifth Third Bank and Priority Health to go on a wonderful shopping spree at Meijer.
Bethany Christian Services identifies families in need during the holiday season and they’re given an opportunity to go shopping for toys, clothes, food and anything else they may need. All of Maranda’s partners agree it’s a chance to give back to the community. Craig’s Cruisers donated a pizza dinner for the family and the staff at Ferris State University even took up a collection for the big event.
One mother told us, “it touches my heart, the giving spirit of people during Christmas. You never know what life is going to throw at you and different things come along, I am so grateful.”
