Please give a great shout out to St. Patrick's Episcopal Church!
Members of the church, including Jean Derum and Leslie Clark, co-chairs of their Harvest Festival, and Jennifer Hornbeck, Priest in Charge, presented Dunbar with a check for $1,800.00 today to help with our garden efforts.
The donation is part of the proceeds from their Harvest Festival. Jean reached out to Dunbar at the start of our school year and through a series of email conversations determined our garden goals and efforts to provide our students with an outdoor garden classroom and outdoor "kitchen" matched their efforts to provide students with "farm to table" education including healthy food choices and healthy living practices.
I am so grateful to St. Patrick's Episcopal Church's outreach efforts to help improve the education and lives of children in our community. I know I speak for all of us here at Dunbar when I say how blessed we are to live here in this community where together we really can make a positive difference in the life of a child.
