Help a child go to summer camp!

March, 2019

Dear HANDLE WITH CARE Sponsor Friend,

Caroline Julia Bartlett Crane

When you think back to your childhood summers, how many of those memories bring you back to summer camp? The cheerful, crackling flames of a campfire, faces lit up by the light, eyes wide as everyone leans in to hear the scary story … whispered secrets from bunk bed to bunk bed in the dark … gooey s’mores smearing chocolate and marshmallow over your face and fingers … cool swims in the lake under the hot sun.

Not every child shares in those rich summer memories.

How precious such camp days would be to the child who otherwise lives burdened with emotional and developmental challenges, often also neglect and abuse.

At Family & Children Services, families who come to us often include children who have never experienced summer camp. Every spring, we send 100 children to a camp matched to each child’s individual needs—and it is your gift that makes that possible.

To make a gift now and send a child to camp, please consider making a single, tax-deductible donation or a multi-year pledge.

  • A gift of $500 sends one child to overnight camp
  • A gift of $250 sends one child to day camp
  • A gift of $100 packs a child with camp supplies
  • A general gift to HANDLE WITH CARE supports a variety of critical client needs and services

Because we believe EVERY child deserves a great summer memory.
