  • Fremont Elementary School Health & Safety Week (Photo Gallery)
    In September we participated in at . Our goal was to enhance the events already planned at the school by providing cold and flu prevention including hand washing education to all of the students prior to the start of cold and flu season. The students were wonderfully curious and engaged throughout the event. Below is a brief description of BSNA's role:
    • Taught hand hygiene to kindergarten through second grade students
    • Provided "how to" handouts for future use in hand washing to all classes
    • Taught cold & flu "fact and fiction" to third through fifth grade students
    • Provided flyers displaying cold & flu information to all classes
    • Assisted with running Safety Town- a miniature town set up to teach bicycle and pedestrian safety to kindergarten and first grade
    • Taught dog safety to children waiting their turn in Safety Town (kudos to Karen Baumgard for developing and implementing this program!)
    • Provided healthy snacks and bookmarks to all 430 children!!!
    Special thanks to the amazing Fremont staff and PTA for inviting us to participate in this event and to all who participated and made it a success!

  • TESSA (Photo)
    In the month of October, BSNA sponsored a donation drive for TESSA, an organization that provides assistance to battered women and families. Toiletries of all sorts were needed. Thank you to all who donated! It was quite touching and inspiring to see the generosity and support from our Beth-El Community. TESSA was so very grateful for our contribution.

    Westside CARES
    The month of November was dedicated to a canned food and warm coat donation drive for Westside CARES, an organization which serves the west side of Colorado Springs and draws faith communities together, including churches, schools, and organizations, to provide assistance and serve those in need.
    Westside CARES was very much in need of warm coats, which supply the "Coat Closet”. Coats are given to both adults and children during the cold winter months. These people would not otherwise have access to a warm coat. The canned food donations were dispersed among four food pantries across the city to feed low income people and families.
    Just like the TESSA toiletries drive, the amount of donations that were received from Beth-El to benefit Westside CARES was incredible. The Westside volunteers stated again and again how desperately they needed warm winter coats--- and we were able to contribute to that cause! Because of Westside CARES, our food and coat donations will make a big impact within the community.
    THANK YOU to all who donated items to benefit both TESSA and Westside CARES--- this donation drive was a success because of you. You impacted someone’s life by contributing items that people needed so very much.
