The Hamptons United Methodist Church has donated $25,000 to the Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center to support its afterschool program.  The donation was presented during a March 11 tour of the Center’s new multi-purpose facility. Executive Director Bonnie Michelle Cannon received the check from Rev. Joanne S. Utley, and church members Jerlean Hopson and Arlean Van Slyke, who also serve on The Center’s Board of Directors.  The church’s gift was prompted by a presentation that Ms. Cannon made at a recent HUMC worship service. The congregation was inspired that The Center was able to continue their afterschool program during COVID. A similar program at the church that served 25 Southampton students has been on hiatus since the pandemic began.
