Each year Resurrection’s Christ in the Community budget includes funds to support our partnership with Douglas MacArthur Kindergarten Academy. The funds were used to help DMKA classroom teachers purchase supplies for their students and to also purchase classroom furniture for local non-profit, Hope for Tomorrow, to use in their after-school second grade classroom.
