April showers bring May flowers. Except for Bethesda where it brings our annual spring fundraising campaign, Hearts for Our Homes, May 23-June 3, to benefit residents with limited resources who live in our Bethesda communities or receive Bethesda services. Campaign proceeds totaled more than $100,000 last year, and we’re hoping for much success resulting in generous support again this year.
When our seniors have exhausted their financial resources and are no longer able to pay for care or services, Bethesda’s Humanitarian Care Fund is there for them. Hundreds of residents benefit with this campaign raising money from amusing events, such as Trivia Night, cookie sales, car washes, barbecues, pie throws, silent auction baskets and raffles, as well as from generous gifts of individual donors.
A gift to Hearts for Our Homes can be earmarked for a favorite Bethesda community or service. Donors who give $50 or more receive an imprinted Bethesda eyeglass case – there is a limited supply, so don’t miss out! To make a gift online today, click here.
