FOOD DRIVE FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY VIOLENCE IN ST. PAUL

Last week Bethel hosted a food/supply drive for our neighbors in need in St. Paul. AND WOW -- you responded quickly and generously! Donations filled the lobby area downtown and nearly $4000 was raised for additional supplies. Jake and Pastor Ladd delivered pallets of food and supplies last Friday and Saturday.

Jacob (Jake) Summerville, who leads High School Ministry here at Bethel, lives near the Midway and has been volunteering as his neighbors get back on their feet and the neighborhood begins to rebuild.

CHRISTMAS 2019 - SERVE LOCAL - OPERATION HELP DRIVES

Operation HELP provides residents of St. Croix County with financial assistance, a place for personal support, and connections to community resources to alleviate short-term economic crises.

This year Bethel helped 35 kids all registered with the Hudson school district. Coordinator Missy Harstad reported that 550 tags (that inclided needs and wants) were taken from the Christmas tree in the Bethel Highlands lobby.  A total of $3,520 in gift cards was collected. Each of the 35 children registered received a pair of shoes, socks, 2 pairs of pants, 2 shirts, underwear and then their wants. Bethel also received 64 rolls of wrapping paper to divide amongst the families and gift bags, tape, and bows.

In addition several of the women's groups at Bethel, also participated by sponsoring families for Operation Help.

As part of the "essentials campaign", coordinated by Bettie Peterson, over 100 sets of shampoo and conditioner were collected.

In the words of our hard-working organizer, Missy, "It was a huge success. Thanks to all who participated."
