During the month of June:
P lease join us in supporting Camp Kesem, a free summer camp for kids whose parents have cancer or have passed away from cancer. The camp is run by college students at GW and relies on donations to provide a comforting space for their campers. You can help make camp awesome this year by participating in our virtual donation drive!
1.   Grab a blue or green card from the board on the Outreach table to sponsor a camp activity.
2.   Note your item number on the clipboard on the table.
3.   Place the amount specified on the card (cash or a check to Christ Church) into an Outreach envelope. Please write "Camp Kesem" and the item number in the memo line of your check, and on your envelope.
All items will be ordered by Christ Church and sent directly to Camp Kesem GW.  
Thanks in advance for your support!
