She works behind the scenes, helping the most vulnerable families in Bethel.
Now Donna Butera has received public recognition for her efforts as Bethel’s Homeless Liaison, providing assistance to families who are without shelter or are in transition.
Donna was honored at the We Are Bethel Celebration with a Milk Toast, a traditional toast of milk. Each year at the Celebration, a special toast is made to a significant contributor to the Bethel community.
As the Homeless Liaison, Donna ensures that appropriate services are provided for children to continue their education despite their uncertain housing situations.
She has also developed a well-earned reputation for going to great lengths in assisting Bethel children with clothes, school supplies or medication, and directing families to appropriate and available social services.
