COVID-19 Immediate Food Response & PPE

Apr 20, 2020
Bethel Global Response

Our local V.O.A.D. members developed an immediate food response effort to serve our local region of Shasta and Tehama County. With many organizations playing a critical role in this response, Bethel was able to facilitate the packing center of this initiative as well as driving and delivery routing coordination. Through community agencies working together on this response, almost 2,300 households received food packages, assisting just under 5,000 individuals.

Simultaneously, in response to our city’s shortage of personal protective equipment, Bethel Global Response established a trained team to create face shields and masks critically needed by businesses and our local health service providers. Through this initiative, 1,500 masks and shields were given out to businesses and agencies that directly needed them to continue to function. Of the PPE that was collected, 4,808 items were donated directly to our local Shasta County Health Department to be used where it was needed most.
