Family Connection Spotlight:
Support Summer Camps
This summer, Rainbow Days' Family Connection team is excited to host three weeks of uniquely themed summer day camps for hundreds of homeless children living at shelters, transitional living sites and motels in the Dallas area. At each of these camps held in accordance with current safety guidelines, children will enjoy exciting learning experiences and receive positive support from adult mentors through classes focused on STEM education, performing and visual arts, and outdoor recreation.

We need your help to make these summer camp experiences unforgettable for homeless children in our community who otherwise would not be able to attend a traditional summer camp. Currently, we are specifically seeking volunteers to help at our Outdoor Adventure Camp in July. Additional camp volunteer opportunities will be available throughout the summer, so stay tuned!

Additionally, for all summer camps, Rainbow Days is in need of a variety of in-kind donations, including individually wrapped snacks, small toys and prizes, one-piece swimsuits for girls and swim trunks for boys (all sizes), flip-flops (all sizes) and sunscreen. Please contact Justin Eatherly with questions about donating.
Community Connection Spotlight:
Padres Unidos at Richardson HS
On May 11, Carolyn Payne of our Community Connection team joined Richardson High School’s Padres Unidos group to enjoy an afternoon of mindful painting and lunch at Cottonwood Park.

Padres Unidos is a support group for parents at Richardson High School who speak Spanish. The group meets once a week to discuss challenges their children face and how to help them achieve personal and academic success throughout their high school experience. Carolyn’s regular participation in this virtual group has helped her stay current on the issues her support group students are facing as well as show support for the parents.

Special thanks go to Anita Cepeda, school counselor at Richardson High School, for helping sustain this valuable partnership and program!
