How much did you pay for a gallon of gas this week? In 1999, when the HSB opened, the average price of a gallon of gas was a mere $1.17! Have you noticed that other costs have increased over the years, too, such as your home utility bills? We have! The HSB utility bills for fiscal year 2022-2023 totaled $38,162.87. This is a challenge for us, particularly with a 27.39% increase in demand for our services and a 60.35% decrease in monetary donations to our facility.

 

As we complete our first 25 years of outreach, we would like to take a moment to thank you for your ongoing support. Whether you are renting our facility, attending an event, or shopping at our two on site bookstores, your partnership allows us to faithfully serve families in West Michigan and beyond!

 

Some highlights from 2023 include:

  • Provided educational counseling and curriculum assistance to 497 new families
  • Partnered with Unknown Nations to distribute Passport to the Nations, a free unit study for families to learn about global missions
  • Served upward of 121,000 people

 

In this new year, we are focused on the great work ahead of us as we continue to steward the resources God provides. Would you please consider a donation? A gift of any amount to our 501c3 organization will impact the longevity of this ministry.

 

Ways to give:

  • cash
  • check
  • card (in person, over the phone, or online)
  • TRIP funds
  • gently used books

 

Words cannot adequately express the positive effect your gift would have with so many families depending on us! Thank you for your kind consideration in continuing to partner with us.

 

Blessings to you and your family,

-The HSB, Inc. Team
