The Bethlehem Center, a 101-year-old community center in Alton Park, is posting a series of videos celebrating its Community Connections summer grant program. The program provided funding for 30 summer programs for children focusing on the arts, character development and productive time out of school during the summer of 2021.
“Being able to support 30 local organizations this summer through the Community Connections summer grant program has been such a blessing,” said Josh R. Singh, director of strategic operations at the Bethlehem Center. “Visiting these faith-based and arts-based programs and seeing the children play, learn and grow was one of the highlights of our summer. “
The Bethlehem Center launches two videos per week on its Facebook and Instagram pages.
Viewers will get a glimpse of the youth activities over the past summer. The published videos can also be viewed at www.thebeth.org.
