CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Gazette Charities Send-A-Child-To-Camp Fund is off to a wonderful start, having collected more than $4,200 from generous readers in its first week.
But we still have a long way to go to make sure that every child in our area who wants to go to summer camp has the opportunity.
Please know that every donation counts, and no amount is too small when considering this worthy cause. And please remember this quote from Aesop: "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
