The children attending St. Mark’s Lutheran’s Vacation Bible School this month by the Vacation Bible School Committee to take on the RPZoo $13 Match Challenge on the Roosevelt Park Zoo page, according to a press release from St. Mark’s.

The children brought in money during the week and an offering was taken during their evening program. To add to the challenge, the St. Mark’s congregation had donated through the 9-1 program leading up to Vacation Bible School. For every $10 a church member donated to the church to help offset the cost of Vacation Bible School, a dollar was set aside for the service project, “Helping God’s Creatures by donating to the New Habitat for a New Century at the Roosevelt Park Zoo.”

A check in the amount of $381 was presented to Becky Dewitz, the Zoo Director, and St. Mark’s Lutheran Church member, during the evening program.
