Ready to Begin With Basics?

Make decorations to brighten the lives of people experiencing homelessness!

DURATION

30-60 Minutes

WHERE

You can make the decorations at home and mail them in! If you are local to Philadelphia you could drop off or possibly even hang at a site!

WHEN

Throughout the year

WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED

May require some adult help to get materials, follow guidelines, mail or drop off, etc.

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Guests and residents have been isolated for the past 2 years, and this will provide a great source of joy to brighten up their spaces and know that people, like you, care!

DESCRIPTION

Bethesda Project operates 16 locations including emergency shelter and permanent housing while providing supportive services. Many of our sites are old and gray, and we are looking for decorations to brighten up the spaces! They can be seasonal (i.e. paper leaves in fall and snowflakes in winter) or just general!


ITEMS NEEDED

Art supplies, large envelope or box for mailing, postage.
