October 01, 2009
For more than 20 years, Bethel’s faculty, staff and students have set aside at least one day a year to donate their time helping out the community. This year the Bethel community will meet Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 8:15 a.m. in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center, split into several different groups and spread throughout the community to work from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Some will participate in projects like yard work, construction, packing food boxes, reading to children and cleanup. More than 30 organizations will receive help from the Bethel community.
