In Feb 2022, we held our sixth Zoom giving event with members. Together we raised over $3,700!
Three great charities were nominated by meeting attendees.
Camp Sunshine, nominated by Anne Howley, provides retreats combining respite, recreation and support, while enabling hope and promoting joy, for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families through the various stages of a child’s illness.
Comfort Zone Camp, nominated by Nicole Perlman, provides a fun and safe camp experience for children who have suffered the death of a parent, sibling, legal guardian, or significant person.
Family Health Project, nominated by Kyra Grenier, offers help to new mothers and their babies facing life without enough money.
After a great discussion, Camp Sunshine was selected to receive our collective donation. We were inspired by this wonderful charity.
Camp Sunshine's program is offered year-round and has the distinction of having been designed to serve the entire family in a retreat model. The program is free of charge to families and includes on-site medical support. A bereavement session is also offered for families who have experienced the death of a child from a supported illness.
