Pastor Joe Denner of the Dover Bible Church presents checks to Patti Jackson (from left), representing DCFS; Tami Foster, representing PADS, and Sandy Elmore, representing Freedom House. The funds were raised during the church’s Vacation Bible School called “Hometown Nazareth: Where Jesus Was a Kid.” Congregation members and 53 children attending VBS also brought in stuffed animals, coloring books, toys, snacks and toiletries to give to children taken into protective custody to let them feel a little more comfortable on their first night away from home.
