100 Days: Countdown for Compassion
February 3, 2014 @ 8:00 am - February 14, 2014 @ 3:00 pm
If you are an educator, this one is for you!!!
In 2014, Bethesda Mission will be celebrating 100 years of providing hope and healing to hungry and homeless people in the Greater Harrisburg area. Would you consider celebrating the 100th day of school — which should occur in early February — in conjunction with Bethesda Mission’s remarkable milestone?
Please consider joining other area schools in the Mission’s 100 Days: Countdown for Compassion, and plan a “100 collection” to benefit our less fortunate neighbors.
See the list below for suggested items. Individual classes or grades may choose to collect 100 of any particular item to celebrate both the 100th day of school and Bethesda’s 100th year of compassion.
Thank you to the following schools who have already decided to participate:
- Covenant Christian Academy
- Harrisburg Catholic Elementary School
- Hershey High School
- St. Joseph School
- St. Stephens Episcopal School
- St. Theresa School
- St. Margaret Mary School
If you or your school plans to participate, please let us know! We’d love to work with you more on this project, send a guest speaker, or schedule a tour or our Men’s Shelter! Thank you!
