Support Us


Bethesda Help is supported by local churches, individuals, schools, businesses, and community groups through food drives, cash donations, and grants. We welcome contributions at any time. 93% of every dollar goes towards providing food and/or financial assistance to the needy in your area. We are entirely volunteer-driven.

Sponsoring food drives is another way that organizations and individuals can help. For a copy of the Food Drive Tool Kit, that describes the steps to hosting a successful food drive, includes sample flyers, a list of stocked items in the Bethesda Help pantry, and information from Mana about food dating, click here: Bethesda Help Food Drive Tool Kit
