It’s hard to believe with all that fluffy white stuff out there that summer camp season will soon be upon us. We have already started receiving support requests from various community service organizations that host kids summer camps for at-risk youth or children from low-income families.
A week at summer camp for children from disadvantaged backgrounds can do wonders for their happiness and self-esteem. It allows them an escape from the challenges of poverty and/or a dysfunctional home while providing the opportunity to improve interpersonal skills, grow their confidence and just plain have fun in a positive and enriching environment.
If it weren’t for the support of our Partners and the energy and dedication of the many dedicated organizations running summer camp programming, these children could very well spend the summer sitting at home, alone, in front of the TV.
We would like to encourage those offering summer camps to submit their requests for funding and those wishing to sponsor this programming for local children in need to submit their donations.
We look forward to providing you with updates in the coming months to advise how many children have been afforded the opportunity to have an amazing summer camp experience thanks to Companies Who Care and its many supporters.
Come on summer!!!
