Pandemic Support

Beta Beta’s Response to the Pandemic

Many of our members are supporting our continuing message - “We care!”.

  • Chapter officers are creatively planning ways that our fundraising will continue in new formats so we can continue supporting educators and students in our area.

  • One member supplied over 175 face masks to Bethlehem House of Bread, Just Compassion, Good Neighbor Center and others.

  • This same member teams with CERT and Tigard City Hall to make masks for First Responders.

  • A team of EIGHT members are providing meals for Just Compassion Resource Center.

  • A team of THREE members are CASA  (Court Appointed Special Advocates) volunteers, and are spending time with CASA families, although not in the manner as before the virus.

  • Several members are providing leadership support to their religious organizations to help support new ways of “doing church”.

  • THREE members along with their spouses and families are doing food packaging, sorting and distribution with Bethlehem House of Bread.
