Daniel has been an active volunteer with Kacie’s Cause since 2019. Daniel decided to join Kacie’s Cause as a volunteer because he believes that “ Our community is stronger when we come together to form partnerships that work together for the common good.” Daniel has been a tremendous leader in the Kennett Square community since becoming the Pastor of First Baptist Church in June of 2014. He retired from his position in August of 2021 so that he could focus on his recovery from colon cancer, which he has battled since 2016. Daniel played a key role in helping Kacie’s Cause obtain a $45,000.00 grant from Chester County to be used to help fund the Recovery Scholarship program. Daniel describes his work in support of the Recovery Scholarship program as follows, “ I see these recovery scholarships as one of the most exciting and practical things Kacie’s Cause offers those working towards recovery. Asking people to give generously to support the work of the recovery scholarships programs is something I find life-giving.”
