Bethany Children’s Home Helping Hands Program is currently providing temporary shelter to unaccompanied children/youth who have crossed our borders to enter the United States. These children are seeking to reunite with their families who already reside in the United States. Many of these children are victims of human trafficking and/or have come from very dangerous environments. A current Wish List of needed new recreation items for these children can be found on the table in the West Foyer at Salem UCC. If you wish to make a monetary contribution, you may write a check to Salem and write Bethany Helping Hands on the memo line and place the check in the offering plate. Thank you for your support as we not only give a Helping Hand but also a Brighter Future for these children.
