Edna Bethea Treasurer and Financial Officer
A former Health Services Manager for Independence Blue Cross, however it is her experience as Director of Intake Services at a major homeless shelter for the city of Philadelphia, that reminded her of the significance of giving back to others. When she heard of an organization designed to provide shoes and socks to children, Edna wanted to know more about it. You see it was a reminder of her youth growing up with three siblings during a time when many households were struggling to provide enough shoes for the growing feet of their children. Edna is truly excited to be given the opportunity to be a part of such a phenomenal organization that is currently providing shoes and socks to children in the state New Jersey. Looking forward to ultimately assisting the organization with providing shoes and socks for children everywhere.
