The JOY Bus had the opportunity to help a resident fix up her deck and restain
it so that she was up to regulation! If you know of someone that could use some JOY
we would love to hear from you! Reach out to email@example.com and let us know!
We were approached about a group of teachers at Woodbridge Elementary that could use some extra encouragement and JOY to finish out the school year. It was a blessing to show up and surprise them and let them know that the work they do is seen and appreciated!
National Nurses Day
Back in May, we asked for your help to nominate a nurse that is always choosing and sharing JOY! Angelina from Resthaven was our winner and we got to stop by and share a little JOY with her and her team!
Allendale Christian 5th Graders
The 5th graders at Allendale Christian School have been learning about spreading encouragement and JOY. A few weeks ago we received some letters of encouragement here at our office and the JOY bus dropped off pizza to the kids to thank them for all that they’re doing to encourage businesses to choose JOY.
Comfort Keepers and Riley Marketplace team up to deliver more lunches!
Comfort Keepers, Riley’s Marketplace, and the JOY Bus teamed up to deliver lunch to local police officers to thank them for all that they do in the community! Check out the video for a glimpse of JOY being spread in West Michigan!
Valentine’s Day JOY
Spreading Joy! It’s what the Joy Bus does! Check out what our friends from Allendale True Value, Encore Floral, and Gemmen’s Ace Hardware help us put together for Valentines Day!
Jingle Bell Rock Hunt with Ady + Noah
The JoyBus had the opportunity to team up with Jensen Jewelers to bring Ady and Noah on their own Jingle Bell Rock hunt through Zeeland! Ady and her family had been searching for the real Jingle Bell Rock back in December and didn’t find it, and Ady wasn’t ready to be done searching :) We’d love to show you a glimpse into a morning filled with lots of JOY!
Comfort Keepers delivers Riley’s Marketplace lunch!
The JOY Bus teamed up with Comfort Keeper’s and Riley’s Marketplace to deliver lunch to the local AMR workers! Lunch was just a small token of thanks and JOY for all of the work that they do in our community every day! Our hope and prayer is that as we team up to spread JOY we will inspire others in our community to do the same! Click the video above for a glimpse at that JOY and the story behind it.
Painting at Family Life Center
The JOY Bus was able to team up with lots of other local businesses and volunteers that are helping update the interior of the home used by the Family Life Center in Allendale! We spent a day and a half painting and doing some small repairs around the house. It is so great to see so many people and businesses donating their time and supplies to update this home that houses young, single moms and their babies.
We spread JOY around West Michigan in the form of JOY baskets! We wanted to thank health care workers, specifically those that are taking care of the older population for all their work and dedication! We filled baskets with goodies that could be placed in the breakroom at each location to let the staff know how appreciated they are!
We had the opportunity to collect and buy instruments (keyboards, violins, and music stands) that were then donated to Harmony Scholars, a ministry of Maple Avenue Ministries. Harmony Scholars works to provide instruments and lessons to children that would otherwise not be able to have that opportunity!
