Help the Homeless Campaign

The Bethel Cub Scouts (specifically Pack 94) were looking for a community service project and wanted to get the Bethel students involved.  During a two week period (December 1st through December 12th), they hope to fill up four barrels located in our main hallway with needed items for the homeless.

Donations can be new or gently used gently used items that families can donate to help the increasing number of people in the Miami Valley who struggle with homelessness.  

We wish to spread the awareness and provide help to those less fortunate.  St. Vincent dePaul provides over 129,000 nights of shelter each year.  The organization has also assisted 1,400 individuals and families to successfully exit the shelter.  If you wish to see more information, vist their website at www.StVincentDayton.Org

All students were provided with a flyer that indicates the most needed items for this Help the Homeless Campaign.  If you wish to donate any of the following items, the school and the Bethel Cub Scouts would be very appreciative:

Children Items Most Needed:  Shampoo for kids, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soft sports balls (Nerf), books, playing cards or small card games, coloring sets.

Clothing Items Most Needed:  Men/Women Shirts (LG-3XL), Men/Women Pants (LG-3XL), new socks (white athletic), children’s clothing (newborn – 18/20)

Family Items Most Needed:  Disposable diapers (newborn p Size 6), baby Wipes, Diaper rash ointment

Many of us in the Bethel community have the means to help in a small way to support those less fortunate.  We encourage you to help teach your children the meaning of kindness and compassion towards others by shopping for a few items to donate.  You could also go through your own closets and find some gently used items to donate.  Anything will be much appreciated!
