HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Many of our guests and residents have been feeling down the last couple of years, and this would really brighten their days and let them know they are not alone!

DESCRIPTION

Bethesda Project is a nonprofit organization that provides shelter, housing and supportive services across 15 locations to adults experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia. Many of our sites are old and gray and we would love for families/groups to come in with decorations to help brighten the space! Could do something related to a specific holiday/season, or just colorful! We can be flexible on time/scheduling.


ITEMS NEEDED

Items for making decorations (or store-bought decorations); making/painter's tape, but we can provide if necessary.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

No minimum age, but require at least one person over 18. Maximum group size 5 individuals, and everyone must be vaccinated and wearing masks at all times.


NEXT STEPS

Contact Jeffrey at communitylife@bethesdaproject.org for scheduling.
