Jameson Camp Helps During Crisis. (CAMP NEWS).
Working closely with the American Red Cross, Julie Marsh, executive director of Jameson Camp, along with staff, board members, and volunteers organized the logistics of housing the travelers. Many in the surrounding community pitched in to help. Area restaurants supplied meals and French and Spanish teachers from local schools came to assist the camp with communication needs. Generous donations multiplied throughout the week, causing an overflow of canned goods, bedding, clothing, etc. ACA national staff assisted the camp in redonating the items to local charitable organizations after the passengers left for their final destinations on Friday, September 14.
Please send stories of how your camp helped during this crisis to Terrie Nicodemus, tnicodemus@ACAcamps.org, or call 765-342-8456, ext. 334. We will share your stories of service in the January/February issue.
