Dora Ernst Memorial Fund

Dora Ernst Memorial Breakfast

Dora Ernst was a mother and a teacher. She was deeply loved all children, Dora devoted her life to teaching kindergartners to second graders.  She was particularly moved by those children who could not learn, because they might not have a warm coat or the money for school supplies.  This Memorial was started by Hopewell Presbyterian Church, in her memory so that all children could come to school prepared to learn and enjoy the school experience.  We have been helping children since 2010 and expanding our missions ever since. Money from this fund goes directly to community schools to be used to the benefit of students. These funds have provided everything from clothing to glasses.
