Camp Fund Provides 67 Scholarships
Friendly Aid raised over $62,800 for our Camp Fund due to the generosity of the Wellesley community. There are 67 children attending camp this summer who otherwise would not be able to participate in the camp experience because of financial need.
These 67 children are attending 18 different camps, including 37 at the Recreation Department and four at PAWS, an academic preschool program. Two children are attending R.E.C., an academic enrichment program for elementary school children coordinated by the Recreation Department with the Wellesley Public Schools. It was formerly known as WINGS.
We were able to assist every eligible child who applied to the Camp Fund. A heartfelt thank you to our donors.
