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, setting up, food preparation and serving, clean up, those who came to bid at the auction (46 numbers were assigned this year), and those who made monetary donations, the auction was a huge success.  We raised over $8,100 from the yard sale, food sales and auction and a fun time was had by all.

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 were at the auction.  Truzella Jacobs, who is from Mid-Town and is  President of the KFH Board, spoke to express her gratitude for the funding received by students over the years from KFH and to thank Leola UMC for their part in raising funds for this 501 (C)(3) Foundation.  Her touching testimonial brought to life exactly how the KFH helps scholarship recipients achieve their educational goals and how they in turn give back to the community.

This fall semester there are two 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 and has the opportunity to touch these young people. 

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