Supporters

Covid-19 certainly presented challenges for Bethesda Help. From the beginning of the crisis, we were concerned about the availability of food and financial resources, as well as how to protect our clients and volunteers. Through teamwork, dedication, and commitment, we found a path forward. Our supporters graciously stepped up and answered our call for food and financial donations.

Businesses – These local businesses have supported us this year by sponsoring fundraisers. We thank them for their investment in helping our community.

Community and Faith-based Organizations (as of October 2021) – With a commitment to serving the community, these groups support us by holding fundraisers, food drives, making financial contributions, and volunteering. Many of the churches and synagogues who support us have worked side-by-side with us since our start in 1968. Their commitment is steadfast and strong. We are fortunate to have all these organizations champion our mission.

Individuals – Each one serves us with an eye to helping neighbors in need. Together they are a mighty force who provide support by sponsoring food drives and donating food and grocery cards to the pantry. In addition to these donations, more than 170 individuals have made a financial contribution this year. We are thankful to them.


Volunteers - The volunteers of Bethesda Help are at the heart of our mission. For more than 50 years their in-kind donation of countless hours working to serve those in need has been invaluable. Answering calls, delivering food, donating food to the pantry, holding food drives, and making financial donations are just some of the ways our volunteers provide support. They always go above and beyond and are always willing to lend a hand where needed. Volunteers are the heart of Bethesda Help. We appreciate all they do!


We are forever grateful to all our Supporters!
