Bethel Church collects donations for DuPage PADS

Published: Friday, Dec. 13, 2013 3:16 p.m. CDT

ELMHURST – Bethel United Church of Christ is collecting gifts for DuPage PADS guests during the holidays.

The Giving Tree at the church holds ornaments with gift suggestions for DuPage PADS guests written on the back. Because PADS overnight sites change each night, participants must travel each day from shelter to shelter. This year, Bethel suggests giving new or gently-used backpacks and duffle bags.

Other suggestions include gift cards to local stores and winter socks. Donations collected will be delivered to the PADS office in early January.

To donate a gift, call the church office at 630-279-4040 or leave your gift at the Bethel Administration Center, 316 Huntington Lane. Office hours are from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
