What are CAMPers doing?
CAMPers are learning all about philanthropy. We want them to practice gratitude and want them to know how much the community cares about them so we tell them when donations come in. They are quick to want to say thank you.
They are also learning to help others in lessons here are CAMP that focus on being grateful for what we have and brainstorming ways to show kindness to others. They are currently collecting pop tabs for our local Ronald McDonald House and will be presenting their gifts to the charity on December 3rd. In addition to that, they are collecting canned foods for the local RGV Food Bank in anticipation of Thanksgiving and Christmas. We'll be dropping off those donations when we volunteer there on November 11th and 19th.
We love how the CAMPers encourage each other and cheer for each other when someone brings in a pop tab or can. They have some of the biggest hearts and we are so happy to support them and all their big goals.
Why Do We Need Your Help?
This will be the Third year C.A.M.P. University celebrates the global movement, #GivingTuesday. In the past we raised funds to support the expansion of the day habilitation program from three days to five days and provided funding for a fire sprinkler system.
As the number of participants grows so does the organization. CAMP recently acquired a large location that will support the growing number of applicants for years to come.
This year CAMP is raising funds to retrofit an elevator so all CAMPers will be able to access the second floor of our building safely. This is important not just for those who are using wheel chairs but also for those with seizure disorders, those who are at a greater risk of falling, those who struggle due to weight, and those who are getting older and have joints that hurt. It’s a big goal but we are also pushing closer to the goal with grants and fundraisers like this one.
We need your help. Donations that come between November 1st and December 31st will be included in the #GivingTuesday campaign that will support this project.
