“Camp Promise is a big treat for me and all the kids and their families. We experience the time of our lives with activities we get to do and a chance to make new friends. The cabins have so much room, the food is good. We have counselors that are almost the same age as us which I like, and they’re very nice. I like that campers and counselors have things in common, like going to college and finding jobs. The fundraising in Stamford is great. We’re so happy that people care about us and keep hope alive for a cure as well” Nicholas, 20, camper at Camp Promise.
If you’ve been with us for a year or two, you might remember that around this time we talk about Camp Promise and all the great things that they do to provide a great camp experience to people with muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular disorders. Through fundraising, campers are able to attend for free, sometimes getting the chance to do things that they never dreamed of like go to a dance, swim, or play a sport. It’s a great cause and for people in Fairfield County it’s easy to help raise some dinero for this great cause.
First of all, you could just donate right to the cause.
Secondly, there are lots of other chances to help out:
1) Stop by the Student Government Association from 10-5 pm UConn Stamford from 2/23-27 and buy flying pigs that will get posted up on campus. Write your name on them, a friend’s name, or even a family member’s name. There might be additional dates for purchase, too.
2) Visit Palmer’s Market of Darien and Garden Catering Old Greenwich, Fairfield, Stamford, and Norwalk from now until March 17 to buy flying pigs to show your support.
3) Come back to the Garden Catering locations on 3/17 because they’ll be donating a portion of sales for the entire day to Camp Promise.
4) Stop by Subway in the Stamford Town Center and Carvel on West Main Street in Stamford now until June, have a sub or a treat, then drop off some change or a few bucks in the donation boxes.
5) Westhill/Stamford High students will be taking up a collection to help out Camp Promise, too.
Well, that’s plenty of ways to get involved and help out. Hopefully you can help out in some shape or form. Here is some additional info for you:
