Share the Spirit Foundation’s Send a Kid to Camp program still needs $1,140 to reach this year’s goal of $7,000.

Forty Rogers County boys and girls will leave tomorrow morning for the Salvation Army’s Camp Heart O’Hills near Tahlequah.

Donations will continue to be collected until the goal is reached.

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 camp.

All of the children are not on welfare. All do not come from families without a working parent. But all are children from families where there is no money for anything extra.

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 office at 315 W. Will Rogers Blvd. Names of donors will be listed unless anonymity is requested.
