Holiday Drive for Bethany House
This is the time of year our spirits overflow with care and concern for those whose lives are woven with ours during this holiday season. The Peace & Social Concerns Committee will begin the annual holiday drive for Bethany House.
From their website: “Families come to Bethany House from many different paths, life experiences, and circumstances. No matter the twists and turns life has thrown at them, they come to Bethany House seeking the same thing, a place to find rest and restoration. That’s what we provide: care and comfort, community and support, encouragement and inspiration, each leading them one step closer to a home of their own.” Thank you again for being so generous with those in need.
Bethany House Services empowers homeless and at-risk families to achieve housing stability and long-term self-sufficiency. This organization provides emergency shelter, identifies affordable housing suitable for the family’s needs, and offers short-term or medium-term rental assistance and housing relocation and stabilization services, including credit counseling, security or utility deposits, utility payments, moving cost assistance, and case management.
We are expecting more clarification from Bethany House concerning children's’ gifts. We believe the small denomination gift cards are given to the mothers to buy gifts for their children or given to the older children as gifts. As they have limited space to store items, this helps them so they don’t have to store toys that don’t match up to the curent children’s ages and interests.
