Want to help us? We would be delighted to receive your thoughts about AFCI programs – and the gaps in our programming. And we could always use help in our initiatives. Specifically, we need people who can assist in our communication efforts. Do you like to write? Are you pretty good with a computer? Do you have even just minimal experience with digital graphics? Wow, we’d love to have your skills in our efforts to reach community members and let them know how our services might help them. See contact information below.

Help us support Bethel’s District Exchange! From the Chamber website: “As of April 2021, The District Exchange closed its location at the Bethel Park Apartments and as a result is no longer able to accept clothing donations or sell clothing. The organization is in search of a new location. This does not affect the Bethel Food Pantry. The District Exchange was founded in 1992 and has operated as a cooperative venture in collaboration with area towns, churches, and a group of dedicated volunteers. It resells clothing and that, in turn, supports the local Food Pantry which supplies food to people in need. It is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation as of 2013.“
