Bethlehem Foundation Powers Senior Outreach for Fifth Year Running
Written by admin, November 1st, 2019   

Guerrilla community service

Our generous sponsors at the local Bethlehem Foundation have once again stepped forward to make sure we will be able to carry on our senior outreach in 2020. This has been a terrific partnership stretching back to 2015 and has meant that thousands more area elders, especially those of lesser financial means, have enjoyed the benefits of bookmobile service to their doorsteps.

Bringing books to access-challenged seniors has been a priority for the program since day one. Even during our initial trailer phase, we were able to find enough space in low-income housing parking lots to set up at properties like PEP Vallejo Street Apartments & Jennings Court. We wheeled our library-style carts down the ramp and into intimate browsing configurations for the residents. Check out the photo of one of these early visits!

We appreciate Bethlehem Foundation for reinvesting their funds right back into the community, even as the high-rise building they sold was guaranteed to continue serving it’s original constituency: aging folks with few resources. It’s a win-win for all of us and we thank them for their mission!
