Hands and Hearts Foundation (HHF) of Sugar Land, Texas, anticipates another mission trip this summer to aid families in Central America. The Foundation teams with Hearts in Motion (HIM), which operates a year-round medical and educational facility near Antigua, Guatemala. HIM coordinates several groups each year from its home base in Highland, Indiana.
Stan Wilkening serves as HHF board president as well as being a working member of the mission trip most years. He is chair of the Hands and Hearts Golf Tournament, which held its 12th successful event in May, 2013. “The funds cleared on the tournament allow the foundation to assist other mission members, especially teens, with travel costs.” Wilkening commented. “The our youth get a taste of giving to a community while learning how lucky they are to be able to return to a prosperous and healthy environment.” The next mission trip is planned for July, 2013.
HHF was formed in April, 2002, as a Christian-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. With no paid employees, volunteers carry out all operations and activities of the foundation, which provides support, assistance and encouragement for a variety of projects.
The foundation supports local non-profit agencies such as East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry Food Pantry and supplies Christmas toys for children in Head Start programs. In addition, HHF has also funded individuals who seek to improve the lives of people in under-resourced areas, both locally and worldwide, by serving as teachers, Christian evangelists, and volunteers on mission trips to Guatemala, Mexico, Honduras, Tibet, Africa and the Netherlands.
