Home / BES Slideshow / BES Community Teams with Hearts with Hands…


Our Bethel families are so blessed and our school wants to reach out and help the many victims of Hurricane Harvey by joining with Hearts with Hands in Asheville, NC. This organization is willing to take our items to Texas so we can help make a difference, even miles away.   Our school, will begin tomorrow bringing in donations and we would love your help!!  At our school information table, across from the PTO table in the foyer by the office, there will be papers with all of the items that Hearts with Hands are accepting.  Food, Cleaning supplies, Children’s Items, are just a few of the categories they are needing help with.  Please get a paper before you leave tonight so we can begin bringing in items to help the Texans that have such a tremendous need.  Thank you for your generosity and support in this project.  We want our Bethel students to have compassion and empathy towards others and what a great way for our community to rally together to support others that need help.  Also, a big shout out to the Blankenship family, Christy/Ryan and their children, as they made us aware of Hearts with Hands and helped us put this project into motion.  Boxes have been placed in our foyer beside the fireplace.  When students come in in the morning, please have them place any donations in the boxes.
