Tornado Damage Update: Help Needed

 

YMCA Camp Hanes sustained significant damage on Wednesday, May 24, when a tornado came through the Sauratown Mountain area. Every single facility and program area was impacted by the tornado, with varying amounts of damage. Professionals have been on site every day since then. Tree removal companies have been clearing trees and insurance adjusters are still on site. Water removal has occurred in multiple buildings. Contractors are working on structural repairs. We are hard at work and getting ready for summer camp to open on June 11.

Truth Network Listener Challenge

Through the Truth Network Listener Challenge, the goal is to send 20 kids to Camp Hanes in King, NC this summer! At YMCA Camp Hanes, we believe in and have seen the incredible, life-long impact a week at camp has on a child. Kids become more confident and build relationships, they grow and experience achievement, build a sense of belonging, and develop character based on the traits of Jesus Christ.

Give the gift of Camp Hanes’ ABCs – Accomplishment, sense of Belonging and learning the Character traits of respect, responsibility, honesty, faith and caring in a Christian camp environment.

Every summer, community support for the Send a Kid to Camp campaign offers children who would not be able to experience Camp the opportunity to unplug from the challenging realities around them and join the natural, nurturing, and fun environment of Camp life. Summer after summer, kids leave Camp more independent and confident; they’ve learned the value of overcoming fears and surpassing goals. The friendships and lessons each donation provides are investments in our community’s strong future, in the leaders who will guide it, and the values behind those decisions.

This year, our goal is to raise $220,000 to send kids from our community to Camp Hanes, the 400-Acre Friend Maker. Over 3,200 will be served this summer!

Can you invest:

     – $1000 and join the Chairman’s Round Table

     – $749 to send a child to resident camp for one week

     – $270 to send a child to day camp for one week

For information on giving levels or to come see Camp in action, contact Mari Pat Thomas at 336-983-3131.
