The holidays are a time to remember what brings us together, what makes us similar. One of the things that binds the Bethany Hill Place community together is wanting to help others. For years we have supplied adult residents with a gift bag full of toiletries, fruit, and small practical gifts. As the holidays approached this year, we sent out a call to friends and board members asking if they would be willing to take a role in making sure our adults felt as remembered and loved as our smaller residents this season.
Almost a dozen friends and board members answered the call and brought in boxes of shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, socks, and more. The holiday spirit sparked as each box was delivered. While every resident expressed deep gratitude when their received their gift, I don't think any could have felt the hope and community the staff did, watching these gifts come together through so many different people.
Thank you to everyone who took part in make the season bright for our adults and children. It was truly a joyous holiday!
