CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- For the past three weeks, the Gazette has presented stories about kids -- or, more precisely, kids and camps.
Kids talked about finding just the right camp, about a place where they felt like they "actually belonged somewhere."
Their parents talked about kids suffering from depression, who turned brighter thanks to a summer camp.
Their counselors reminisced about kids who stood out to them, like the 7-year-old girl who finally had a reason to wear a pretty dress thanks to the end-of-camp banquet.
When you donate to the Gazette Charities Send-A-Child-To-Camp Fund, these are the children who benefit -- hundreds of children each summer.
If you make a donation to the fund, you can rest assured that every dollar is spent on a camp adventure for a child who might not otherwise been able to attend.
But the fund total is lagging behind this year. Your donation is desperately needed. Please don't delay (see the donation coupon with this story). Or, if you prefer, go to our website (wvgazette.com) and click on the Camp Fund logo to make an online donation.On behalf of the children who would love to attend camp this summer, thank you!
