NEWS & NOTES     Keeping you connected with camp



As we wrap up 2014 with our amazing winter camp, we are thankful for all we have been able to accomplish this year. Because of friends like you, we were able to provide life-changing experiences through our camp, respite and travel programs. We celebrated the Camp Friendship 50th Anniversary and the dedication of our new horse facility for True Strides. We are growing our programs to meet the changing needs of the disability community.


Don't let this holiday season end without sharing a gift that will mean so much to someone special. Children and adults with disabilities need the generous support of true friends like you. If you would like to make a tax deductible, year-end contribution,
you can give online today or visit our website to see the many ways to give back to camp.
"Camp gives my granddaughter a chance to be a typical child for one week out of the year. She is 10 years old, has autism and is nonverbal. She is the light of my life. It is so wonderful to see her face light up when she arrives at camp!" -- Lori

A year-end gift to camp is tax deductible and can help in so many ways! Your gifts provide financial assistance to campers, stock craft and program supplies, and purchase safety equipment and medical supplies to keep campers comfortable. New programs like therapeutic riding and enVISION career skills sessions are just two examples of how we're bringing new programs to life.
Volunteers

 

Volunteers have an enormous impact on the sustainability of True Friends' programs, business operations and strategic direction. The past 12 months were some of the most impactful for volunteer service contributions. We can not operate without volunteers!

 

We know 2015 will be an exciting year, and we're eager to spend time with many talented volunteers and interns. Continue your involvement by logging in to our online volunteer portal or contacting the Volunteer Services Department.
