On Wednesday evening, August 23rd, the Kiwanis Club hosted a Back-to-School Bingo for the residents at the Bethany Children's Home. Backpacks, duffel bags, lunch bags, and assorted school supplies were also donated by Precision Medical Products, Denver PA, Tulpehocken UCC, Richland, and L&B Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth, Robesonia so that all youth in care would receive a new backpack filled with new supplies and essential items to start school on Monday, August 28, 2017. The teens at Bethany competed at Bingo to select their backpacks, duffel bags and assorted school supplies. This is just one of several projects the Kiwanis Club sponsors to benefit the children at Bethany. Other projects include making Christmas cards for veterans at the Lebanon V.A. Hospital, making applesauce with the residents in the cottage kitchen, and spring cleanup of the gardens on the Bethany campus. The Kiwanis Club of Greater Reading - Berks County is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of their chartering on Monday October 30, 2017. At Bethany, school supplies are always in high demand as new youth are placed into care each day. The backpacks and supplies provide youth the opportunity to individualize their items and be set up for success throughout the year. Kevin Snyder, CEO, Bethany Children’s Home shared that the generosity of our local community to help our youth be prepared for school is tremendous. Through their gifts no youth will need to worry about having school supplies for not only the beginning of the school year but also throughout the entire year. Education is one of the keys to the success for the youth we care for. Providing each youth the support, enrichment and tools they need to achieve their academic goals empowers them to take back their lives. The mission of Bethany Children’s Home is to provide a safe place of nurture, protection, and supportive care to aid our residents in their self-understanding, growth, and healing toward a brighter, healthier future. Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world, one child and one community at a time.
