BETHEL'S OPERATION HELP DRIVES (Giving Tree & Essentials) | CHRISTMAS 2021 

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.

Thank you to all who brought in gifts or donated money for the Operation Help Giving Tree and Essentials Campaigns. Because of you, Christmas morning was a
lot brighter for many families in our area.
This year we provided three wants, two needs, socks/underwear and hats/mittens for 35 Hudson kids (that is 315 gifts)! In addition we provided:
• Wrapping paper and tape for the parents
• 17 additional sets of socks
• 14 additional sets of underwear
• 35 additional hats
• 15 additional mittens/gloves, and
• $587 of additional Christmas gifts (aka 31 gifts) for other Operation Help families. (note: we collected $755 in donations and $168 went to supporting the 35 kids listed above)
In addition, the Essentials Campaign delivered 65 sets of shampoo & conditioner to Operation Help.
Thank you to Bethel’s Giving Tree coordinator, Koreen Theisen and Essentials campaign coordinator Laura Ludeman.

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.
