Holidays at Bethany

We are gearing up for another wonderful holiday season here at Bethany! Learn more about holiday celebrations at Bethany and how you can help.

Holidays 2020

Each year, Bethany youth and team members look forward to our annual Hanging of the Greens service, cookie socials, ornament exchanges, fellowship opportunities, the annual Youth Christmas Dinner, Christmas Eve service, and of course, Christmas Day!

We aren’t sure what our Christmas is going to look like this year, but we still will make the holiday season amazing for our youth!

Thank you to all who supported Christmas at Bethany Children’s Home in the past. You’ve all helped to make the holidays a very bright spot in our young residents’ lives. We are so thankful for all of you!

Christmas Land is at a NEW LOCATION this year! 
Donations will be accepted at the Gatehouse, the home at our campus main entrance off Ryeland Road.

This year, we are requesting donors schedule a drop-off time with us. Details are here: Christmas Gift Drop-Off Information

Our Christmas wish list is below. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Development department at 610-589-6828. Thank you for all you do for our youth!
