AFLAME FOR KIDS

 

The Aflame For Kids program is a partnership between Orange Park United Methodist Church and

W.E. Cherry Elementary School.  Each week students and their mentors spend quality time together.  Twice a year a learning themed party is hosted for the mentors, teachers, parents, students and their siblings.  

 

This mission has a profound impact on the life of a child and also on those who commit to help.  Applications are accepted throughout the year.
