BETHEL, Conn. -- Brotherhood In Action Bethel is a United Way of Western Connecticut Hometown Hero Award honoree.
Brotherhood In Action came about as a common interest of three religious fraternal organizations and was founded on the premise that people have common needs regardless of their backgrounds and help could be provided in similar fashion to all.
Its governing board is made up of members of Eureka Lodge, the Freemasons and Pavia Council, Knights of Columbus. For more than 25 years, Brotherhood In Action has organized community-wide support in the form of food, household items, toys, clothes and monetary gifts. It organizes food collections and deliveries to individuals and families in Bethel at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.
Throughout the year, Brotherhood In Action also provides food and other assistance to families on a weekly basis as needed. Last year alone, Brotherhood In Action provided meals to more than 300 Bethel families. Recipients get fresh food, produce, canned goods, breakfast items and snacks. Food also is provided on a continual basis to the St. Thomas Food Pantry, which also serves the residents of Bethel. The contributions of Brotherhood In Action have an impact on the Bethel community.
