What We Do

Working in the Community

Bethlehem Senior Projects, Inc. benefits older adults in the community by

  • acting as catalyst and coordinating agency to bring people, projects and resources together to reach shared goals;
  • cooperating with the town's Senior Services Department to provide services such as transportation, nutrition programs and fuel assistance;
  • writing grant applications designed to obtain funding for services to town residents;
  • sponsoring educational and wellness programs; and
  • purchasing and supplying equipment to facilitate access to services and sites in the town.

Transportation

Volunteer drivers provide regularly scheduled and affordable transportation to activities, shopping and professional appointments for residents over the age of 60. Three of four vans are handicapped accessible with wheelchair lifts; one-on-one transportation from home to healthcare for very frail individuals is provided in passenger cars. The vans serve more than 75 people a day; weekends and evenings, vans are used for pre-planned Bethlehem Senior Services outings.


Food Pantry

Individuals and community groups donate canned goods and non-perishable items for distribution at the Bethlehem Food Pantry. Bethlehem Senior Projects coordinates these items, and donated funds and distributes gift certificates for food and other necessary items to food pantry recipients. The pantry is kept stocked and staffed by Bethlehem Senior Volunteers; volunteers also prepare and deliver more than 100 food and/or gift baskets each year at holiday time.
