St. John's Day Camp Appeal 2019
Pictures are worth a thousand words, so I've filled this year's St. John’s Day Camp Appeal with photos from last summer in order to show you the smiles on the faces of the children you are helping with your donations.
What Is the St. John's Day Camp?
Run by the Town of Huntington, the camp is named in our church's honor because the educational portion is made possible every year – for over 50 years – by you, our St. John’s parishioners. Available to families who fall below the poverty line, this no-cost camp is for many the first formal education their children receive before they attend kindergarten. For 6 weeks, campers get to experience traditional camp fun along with enrichment at a critical time in their development.
This year the need is as strong as ever. Your donations for this public-private partnership will underwrite teacher and staff salaries and cover field trip costs (including admissions and transportation). Approximately 70 children attend and are grouped into 3 teacher-led classes.
How can you Help?
You can volunteer and give. Sign up to do both by following the links below.
Every donation helps as it all goes to achieving our educational mission and determining the activities we're able to fund. We also love to have parishioners as “volunteers for an hour” – they make a big difference in inspiring these developing minds. Come see for yourself the wonder and impact of reading to a child, sharing a talent or collection! If you’re interested, use the form below.
Please join us again this year as we honor our commitment to the youngest and most vulnerable members of our community by supporting us through this online donation form.
