Covid-19 continues to impact our work at Bethesda Help. At 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, but through teamwork, we found a way. In 2020, during the first year of Covid-19, the number of food deliveries we made increased 82%, almost double, from the year before. And now, three years later, that increase in food deliveries has grown to 137% more than before the pandemic hit. Our ability to continue to provide food to our ever-growing client base is only possible due to the dedication and commitment of our supporters who continue to answer the call for food and financial donations.

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.
