IMPORTANT NEWS ALERT: “The USDA recently issued additional regulations related to the distribution of USDA-provided food that require changes we believe unduly hinder worship and prayer activities that are fundamental to Bethesda Mission. We have made the decision to no longer accept this USDA food, a decision we know you will support, but we also will need your help to overcome this shortfall. Please be generous as we seek to serve our brethren in need, while continuing to inspire hope, restore lives, and honor our Christian faith.”
The turkeys, meats, canned goods, and cereals are needed for food box distributions, meals at the Mission on Thanksgiving Day, and for meals that will be delivered to the aged and shut-ins.
Chuck Wingate, executive director of the Mission states, “Each year, our commitments are made before we know where the food is coming from. Over the years, we have seen God move the hearts of faithful people of this community to provide for these needs. So please, bring in your donation as soon as possible! We want to be sure that anyone who needs a meal will get it! For over 102 years this community has responded to the needs of our neighbors, and we are confident that this year will be no different. But we need your help! Thank you for your wonderful generosity!”
