In addition, the preschool’s annual community service project concluded, with goods that were donated throughout the month of September presented to Carol Holland, the ministry leader for St. Francis Ministry for Animals at Christ Episcopal Church (SFMCEC). SFMCEC is devoted to the support of local nonprofits that rescue, rehabilitate and adopt homeless pets.
The collected items will be distributed to BEAM (Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry), Katz 4 Keeps, First Coast No More Homeless Pets, The Mission House and River City Community Animal Hospital.
