KOA's Care Camps Serve 5,000 Annually
The following news release comes courtesy of Southeast Publications, whose vice president, Carlene Morris, is a member of the board of KOA Care camps. KOA Care Camps is a non-profit 501(c)3 charity of the KOA Owners Association founded in 1984 to assist with financially supporting qualified special non-profit cancer camps for children and young adults throughout the U.S. and Canada. In the release, Morris stated the following:
“When I looked at this video, I understood why we all work so hard to raise money for KOA Care Camps. Just to watch those young adults have a place where they could feel just like others their age made me want to work and get more donations and help in any way I could. As a board member of KOA Care Camps and vice president of Southeast Publications, I will work to make sure all kids with cancer can go to camp and have this wonderful experience. This was Wayne Morris's and Peter Warrick's charity of choice, they both felt they could not do enough for these kids with cancer.”
Since being founded, more than $4,283,845 has been contributed; and according to KOA Care Camp’s 2012 Annual Report, the program has grown to over 5,000 kids per year. We here at Southeast Publications wanted to share this video and support this great and meaningful cause. In 2012, Southeast Publications presented Care Camps with a check for $66,343 and we are quickly approaching our $500,000 donated goal. We believe that every kid deserves to be happy. Knowing our donations put smiles on young people’s faces and allows them a moment to just be kids is what keeps us working towards donating more. Take a few minutes, watch the video, share the video, and if you can, please donate.
