DAN AND DOREEN Jones, from the Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church, present a $500 check to Dolores School District Superintendent Scott Cooper. The contribution is to support the Dolores Elementary after school program. Cooper said he was thrilled with the presentation.
I am very grateful the United Methodist Church stepped up to support our after school program, he said. It is a wonderful thing.
In addition, the church has pledged three or four volunteers to help with the after school program on early-release Wednesdays, something about 80 children are scheduled to participate in.
The money will be used to purchase snacks for the children participating in the program.
