DOZENS of lo­cals had a brighter fes­tive sea­son thanks to Bethanie on the Park in Menora. Res­i­dents, staff, friends and fam­ily do­nated bags and goods for the na­tional ‘It’s In The Bag’ cam­paign. Thirty-five hand­bags were do­nated and filled with items such as makeup, sun­screen, sham­poo, jew­ellery and per­sonal hand­writ­ten cards to brighten the lives of women in need. Chap­lain trainee Kyla Hillmer said it was the sec­ond year in a row res­i­dents had taken part in the ap­peal.

“We had a bag pack­ing party with res­i­dents, from Bethanie on the Park join­ing in the oc­ca­sion wear­ing Santa hats to pack the bags in the spirit of Christ­mas. Ev­ery­one had such a great time,” she said.
