Beth-El holds 3rd annual “Light Up the Harbor for Beth-El!” as it marks 30th year of service

MILFORD - Beth-El Center, a 34-bed transitional housing shelter and soup kitchen, will holds its annual “Light Up the Harbor for Beth-El!” fundraiser from 6 to 11 p.m. June 4 at the Milford Yacht Club.
The event will support the organization’s 30-year mission to provide housing, meals, and support services for homeless individuals and families, with the goal to prevent and end homelessness in the community, organizers said in a statement.
The event will include dining, dancing, entertainment and an auction, the statement said.
The soup kitchen staff and its many volunteers serve 50 to 70 hot, nutritious lunches daily, while church and community groups provide weekend meals. Beth-El Center is located at 90 New Haven Ave. and serves the surrounding area.
 In 2010, Beth-El served 19,595 meals and provided shelter to 267 individuals – almost a quarter of whom were women and children, the statement said.
