Community Impact

HJWL is pleased to financially support children in the greater Holland area. Once a year, HJWL receives many grant requests from various charitable agencies in the greater Holland area including surrounding communities such as Zeeland, West Olive, Borculo, Dorr, Saugatuck, and more. 

 

Through a formal investigating process, HJWL members, a.k.a volunteers, interview each agency that has submitted a grant request to HJWL. As a collective group, the members of HJWL carefully consider how each organization's grant request may positively impact the lives of children in greater Holland area.
