Dear Friend,
The new year is in full swing and we are looking forward to what comes next at Bethany House. To kick the year off, we have great news to share. Celebrity Wait Night is coming back in 2023! Mark April 24th on your calendars and watch for more information in future emails. We cannot wait to gather again with Bethany House’s biggest fans.

We are bringing in 2023 with gratitude for those who made the Christmas season special at Bethany House. Listed below are some of the individuals and organizations who provided gifts to Bethany House shelter participants, sponsored gifts for families who recently moved into permanent housing, dropped off Christmas cookies, hosted holiday donation drives to keep the Bethany Shoppe stocked with household supplies, and so much more.

Let’s keep the community spirit rolling into the new year. We hope you’ll spread the word about Celebrity Wait Night and encourage your friends to save April 24th for a fun night out with you for a great cause. Bethany House provides the services, tools and resources participants need to rebuild their lives from essential needs, like safe shelter and household supplies, to advocacy and education. Your contributions help us fulfill the mission, so reach out today if you have ideas or questions about how you can be involved this year. We look forward to hearing from you!

On behalf of Bethany House Staff, Board, and Volunteers,

Deidra Lashley

Executive Director
