JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Hats off to the PhilippianCommunity Church on New Kings Road in Jacksonville! Anne Marlow and other members set a goal of raising $500 for our Apple Project to build a free dental clinic in Jacksonville.

The children made apple magnets and candy apples to sell. They worked for weeks practicing an apple rap to explain how tough it is for people who can't afford dental care.

The entire church rallied behind the young folks involved.

And they were a big success. They raised $500! That will be a $1000 donation because the Weaver Foundation will match it.

Our big need now is for donation of labor and supplies.
