Without the partnership of our corporate sponsors, New Bethany Ministries could not adequately provide the hope and support given to our clients each day. Corporate partners are the backbone of New Bethany, strengthening our ability to sustain our community and keep our doors open for those in need of a warm meal, safe lodging or food on their table. 

Olympus Corporation of the Americas is one such partner. For more than 16 years, Olympus has supported New Bethany through volunteering, collecting non-perishable food, and gifting over $100,000. Their participation in our annual events has allowed us to reach new heights.

“Olympus is proud to partner with New Bethany Ministries and support their mission to offer hope and support to people who experience poverty, hunger and homelessness,” said Krista Ortwein, Senior Manager of Community Affairs at Olympus. “Our long standing partnership with New Bethany Ministries has provided countless avenues to connect our employees to team building volunteer opportunities, food collection drives and fundraising initiatives such as Souper Day and the Spring Hunger Appeal. It is amazing to see the impact we can make when strong forces in the community come together for an important cause. As one of our chosen charitable partners in the Lehigh Valley, we look forward to many more years of valued partnership.”

In 2006, Olympus Corporation of the Americas, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Olympus Corporation, relocated its headquarters to the Lehigh Valley. The company is dedicated to creating innovative solutions for medical technologies, life sciences, and industrial and consumer products.

“Olympus Corporation of the Americas at its core makes people’s lives healthier, safer and more fulfilling. They are also deeply committed to giving back,” states Sandra Beiber, Director of Development and Communications for New Bethany Ministries. “We are so grateful for the important relationship between New Bethany and Olympus. Their support offers comfort to so many and ensures our helping hand reaches all those in need in the community.”

Olympus is currently collecting funds to support New Bethany’s Thanksgiving meals.
