Bethany continues to support Beverly Shores Elementary School. In July we held a Bar-B-Q lunch and we were able to give Beverly Shores a check for more than $2,000. A huge thanks goes to Colletta Doll and her committee who worked for hours to make this event such a huge success.
We also continue to collect books for Beverly Shores so that each classroom can have library books available for their students.
Beverly Shores Elementary supplies breakfast for students and they have a "pantry" at school where they keep some breakfast items they use to feed children that may be late to school and have not had any breakfast. So, we have been asked to help fill their pantry. This won't take a huge commitment on our part but we are asked to bring a box of breakfast bars now and then. You can simply leave them on the table in Founders' Hall.
Special thanks to all who contributed to the "Valentines for Teachers" project at Beverly Shores Elementary. Your generous contributions allow us to partner with Christ United Methodist Church to prepare a bag of candy with a valentine and friendship bracelet for every teacher, teacher aide, and staff (130 bags).
Bethany also continues to supply our local Leesburg Food Bank with food items. Jan Johnson leads this effort and we thank her for her continued involvement in this endeavor. Items, like cereal, canned goods, etc. can be placed in the baskets on the tables in fellowship hall.
