BENEFITING: EAST END COOPERATIVE MINISTRY
Every year, EECM brings together 200 children and youth for our Summer Day Camp, a 5-week immersive experience that allows campers to go caving, choreograph dances, increase their reading proficiency, build lifelong friendships, play games, discuss social issues…and more!
The kids in our camp do not often have the opportunity to venture beyond their neighborhoods, let alone attend amusement parks and cultural attractions. Your donation ensures that each child, regardless of their socio-economic status, has a summer filled with joy, laughter, learning, and growth. On a deeper level, camp allows children to celebrate their heritage and engage in social justice issues while reinforcing the importance of living a safe, healthy life free of drugs and alcohol.
