For the second time in two years, Bethel Free Health Clinic has been awarded an 'Operation Round Up Grant' from the Coast Electric Community Trust. These grants are funded by the generosity of Coast Electric members who round up their monthly electric bills. Bethel Clinic will be using the grant monies for patient care needs. A big “Thank You” to Sandra Bishop, who wrote and submitted the grant on behalf of Bethel, and to Coast Electric and its generous customers!
On September 25, 2022, Bethel Free Health Clinic volunteers hosted a Bunco Tournament at the Biloxi Visitors Center. Cash prizes were awarded for the most Buncos, the most wins, and the second most wins. Drawings for multiple door prizes were held between each game set.
On August 11, Bethel Clinic was the recipient of a check from Boomtown Casino's July TITO funds. The amount of the check was $2111.47.

Each year the employees of The Peoples Bank come together to support local charities. The Charity Committee gives the employees the opportunity to select the charities that they themselves would like to represent. To encourage participation, each employee who raises $100 or more for the chosen charities and volunteers for at least four community service hours receives a day off. This past year 104 employees participated, working 360 community service hours and raising $8200.00.
Two local charities were chosen to be recipients of the funds: Elijah’s Closet and Bethel Free Health Clinic.
Kudos to the employees of The Peoples Bank! We are truly grateful for your generosity!
