You’re invited to “Ladles of Love,” a Community Soup Luncheon to benefit My House Ministry on March 15, 2016, from 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the South Side Holland Boys and Girls Club, 435 Van Raalte Ave, Holland, MI.
If you participated in Women’s Service Day last fall, you may have worked at one of the homes for women and children run by My House Ministry. The organization provides a faith-based transitional housing program for women and their children in Ottawa County. Their goal is to help women with personal, spiritual, and emotional growth, to make permanent changes in their lives.
One hundred percent of funds generated from ticket sales and a silent auction will be designated for providing housing, guidance, and hope to women and children in need at My House Ministry homes. The silent auction items include:
- One-night hot tub room stay at “The Shack” Lakeside Log Lodge in White Cloud, MI
- Golf package at Pigeon Creek Golf Course
- Movie ticket package to AMC Holland Star 8
- “A Day as Holland City Manager”
- Biggby Coffee package
- Poppin’ Huis popcorn basket
- And more!
Ladles of Love is organized by community members, school officials, a job trainer from a local addiction recovery employment program, and neighborhood community leaders. A food service teacher from Holland Public Schools and 50 of her advanced food students have adopted this event, planning and working to make it a success. Soups, breads, and desserts will be provided by area restaurants and caterers. With so much community participation, an estimated 300+ guests are attending.
If you’re interested in attending, and learning more about My House Ministry, order your tickets online now. Or, to avoid processing fees, committee members can drop off any specified number to a business or individual for $10 each. Tickets can also be purchased with cash, MasterCard, or Visa on day of event for $15. To-go orders will also be accommodated if you’d like to treat a coworker, family member, or friend, or can’t be there for the event.
For the past three years, My House Ministry has operated two homes in Holland, serving 55 women and 15 children. This past summer, the organization filed for nonprofit status and hired a Life Skills Coordinator (case management) for residents to have guidance and accountability with their specific life goals.
