Pictured above is Reverend Jen Dunfee, the inspirational and spiritual leader of the National Presbyterian School’s student service project. She is leaving for a new full-time assignment in Northern Virginia. As we celebrated the students’ past year of honorable and altruistic achievements, she proudly displayed “Helping Hands.” The photo is a fitting representation of fifth-graders’ hands-on completion of the annual Toiletry Donation Service Project, a joint effort of D.C. Public Library’s Homeless Services, Friendship Place, and me.
