For the good coronavirus cause

1) Brought to Gadfly’s attention by the Lehigh Valley Monthly Meeting (Quakers):

New Bethany Ministries

New Bethany Ministries is a community of hope and support. We are a caring organization who stands on the front lines serving the most vulnerable population of Bethlehem and the Lehigh Valley. In 35 years we have never closed our doors, and we are working every day to make sure those doors do not close at a time when our neighbors need us the most.

Volunteer needs
We are encouraging volunteers to be conservative in their decisions to work. As such, we already have had many appropriately cancel plans and we are seeking additional volunteers at this time. Volunteers do not interact with the general public. For those committing to make a meal or help in the food pantry, we are scheduling just one or two people at a time. Please contact Brandy Garofalo at 610-691-5602 ext.210

Material needs
We are accepting all cleaning supplies and any food people can offer (non-perishable, fresh, frozen, prepared). Those can be dropped off at our office weekdays between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Monetary needs
We need your help to keep our doors open. Click here to donate.
