Proclaiming Grace Outreach presents donation checks to New Kent Humane Society and New Kent Animal Shelter

Community organization Proclaiming Grace Outreach presented the New Kent Humane Society and New Kent Animal Shelter with $6,000 checks on Nov. 16 to help the society and shelter’s operations and adoption efforts, according to Proclaiming Grace Outreach director Melanie King.

The checks were a result of the last Jenna Bash Festival and were donated in honor of Jenna Grace King, 17, who died in a car crash in 2008. The organization hosts the event each year to honor and celebrate the teen’s life and raise money. The organization sponsors a food pantry and completes minor home repairs around New Kent and James City County. Jenna was an animal lover, according to her mother, Melanie King.
