Bethesda is excited to be a part of the 8th annual Give STL Day, St. Louis’ 24-hour day of online giving, which is taking place on May 6. The St. Louis Community Foundation sponsors Give STL Day as part of an initiative to expand charitable giving in our community, and strengthen the presence of charitable organizations.
During Give STL Day, the St. Louis region comes together to collectively support hundreds of regional charities. Since 2014, these efforts have raised a total of $17.5 million. Last year, at the onset of the pandemic, participating Foundations were still able to raise more than $4.5 million.
“Bethesda has been a part of the St. Louis community for 132 years, and like many organizations, faced exceptional challenges due to COVID-19. I began investing in Bethesda more than eight years ago, when I moved to Barclay House. I am happy to renew my support so Bethesda continues helping St. Louis seniors. Everyone should invest in their community, particularly during these times, so the community will always be there for them.” says Kathy Lupo, a resident of Bethesda Barclay House.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, communities across St. Louis and Illinois have shown that this outbreak has had both immediate and long-term consequences, particularly on frail populations like seniors. Your support of Bethesda will help us continue to keep our seniors safe and healthy.
Early giving for the Give STL Day campaign begins April 5. You can go to GiveSTLDay.org to make your gift to Bethesda, so we may continue helping area seniors.
