Kensill Fund for Hope Auction - Thank You

Praise the Lord!  Thanks to His leading and the generous outpouring of donations from businesses and church members, the many who helped with solicitation of donations, mailings, set up, food preparation and serving, clean up, those who came to bid at the auction (49 numbers were assigned this year), and those who made monetary donations, the auction was a huge success.   (Just a fun fact, this year all baked goods brought in over $2,100!)

But the true joy comes from helping the youth in the area of Philadelphia where Mid-Town Parish UMC is located with scholarship money to supplement the cost of their higher education.  Many of our Mid-Town friends and three of the students receiving scholarships were at the auction bringing their donations and taking home some of the "treasures" from the auction. This fall semester there are eight scholarship recipients. It is because of your support and contributions to the KFH that the foundation will be able to award funding to these students, thus having the opportunity to touch the lives of these young people who in turn give back to their church and community.

Thanks be to God and our faithful supporters here at Leola UMC and at Mid-Town

Parish UMC.
