Outreach Sunday for Bethesda Help


April 26

On Sunday, April 26th, all undesignated contributions will be donated to Bethesda Help, an all-volunteer ministry.  In the face of COVID-19, Bethesda Help volunteers continue to provide emergency food and financial assistance to residents of southern Montgomery County with the following services:

Emergency Food
  • A three-day supply of food for each member of the household delivered to area homes, regardless of income
Financial Assistance
  • rent – partial or full payment on overdue rent for those who have received an eviction notice
  • utility service – partial or full payment on utility service for those who have received a disconnection notice
  • prescription medicine – full or partial payment on verified physician’s medicine prescription

Bethesda Help’s emergency assistance prevents families on the financial edge from becoming homeless in the midst of the current pandemic. Please give generously.
