When my husband and I moved into Bethesda last Fall, I contacted Bethesda Cares to see what volunteer opportunities were available. They sent me to see Blake and Sam at the lunch program.
I began volunteering on a regular basis. I met Darren and Lewis who were once homeless but now in housing thanks to Bethesda Cares. These guys keep us entertained while they make delicious soups, pasta dishes and hot meals for the homeless.
I’ve also volunteered in the Bethesda Cares office. Between the kitchen and the offices, I have a much broader view of the issues facing those who are homeless. I also have the opportunity to see the kindness, generosity, and the passion to help others from the staff at Bethesda Cares.
If you have some time to volunteer, I cannot think of a better place than Bethesda Cares.
