Bethany House Wish List
Bethany House is a composite of residential options for women and children who are caught in the crisis of homelessness. Bethany defines its mission as a response to its belief that each person deserves and needs adequate food, clothing, and shelter, provided in a nurturing and sustaining environment.
Bethany House exists to strengthen and assist those women and children from Long Island who are deprived of the basic resources required for natural and healthy growth and development. Bethany House seeks to provide a homelike atmosphere wherein shelter, care, and comprehensive services combine to encourage the individual or family to attain self-sufficiency and restore human dignity.
This list is a bit comprehensive – we’re listing greatest needs first, but WE WILL APPRECIATE WHATEVER CAN BE DONE FOR US.
Sheet sets [full bed size and twin bed size] blankets, pillows, mattress protectors, comforter sets OR bedspreads - when our families move, we try to provide these items for them in their new apartments
Cleaning supplies [409, Windex, Scrubbing Bubbles, SOS, etc.], brooms, mops, laundry baskets and laundry detergent - when our families move, we try to provide these items for them in their new apartments
Mayonnaise, Ketchup, Barbecue Sauce
Metro Cards for bus transportation
Gift cards for Walmart, CVS, BJ's, [we provide birthday gifts for ALL our children so these come in handy.] Also - many of our families arrive at Bethany with literally nothing so they often need underwear, socks, etc. as well as school clothes and shoes/sneakers.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP –
