Send a Kid to Camp fundraiser kicks off

$11,000 needed to send local kids to summer camp



The community’s support will make it possible for over 40 children, including Hannah, Sarah, Sean and Aaron, to have that important camp experience.
At a cost of $210 per camper, “Send a Kid to Camp” needs to raise $11,000 to make it happen.
The camp fee includes lodging, meals, insurance, and a canteen card to buy snacks and craft materials.
All money raised is used for campers. Funds are administered by the Share the Spirit Foundation.
DHS coordinates camper eligibility, physicals and paper work. The Pilot Club of Claremore provides “ditty bags” with shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, washcloths, hair brushes and combs. Salvation Army - Claremore Unit charters buses to take the campers to Tahlequah and provides clothing, bedding, shoes and whatever else the children need for a comfortable and memorable camp experience.
Please send your tax-deductible donation to Share the Spirit, c/o Claremore Daily Progress, P.O. Box 248, Claremore, OK 74018, or drop by the Progress business office at 315 W. Will Rogers Blvd. 
Names of donors will be listed unless anonymity is requested.
