Summer is almost here. This season is for playing, making new friends, and reading the stuff you want. Unfortunately, for many of the families we serve, it can also mean getting behind in your education, food scarcity, and limited supervision. Parents often have to work late hours and multiple jobs and, to no fault of their own, can’t afford quality childcare or nutritious food.
This is where we come in.
We’re asking you and your friends to make this summer special, safe, and smart for one child by sending them to Americana’s Summer Camp. Our 7-week program is full of learning (but it’s fun and there are no tests) and exercise and good food and friendship. But quality programs, interesting curriculum and memorable experiences cost money to create. To be specific, $200 for every child for one magical summer.
We know that’s a lot to ask so we encourage you to find a couple of friends and co-workers or maybe your book club or golf buddies to chip in with you to sponsor an Americana Kid. Be a team leader and sign up here to raise $200 among your friends to send one child to Summer Camp or join the larger team and give what you can!
Your sponsorship will also say that someone they’ve never met believes in them, cares about them, and supports them individually. You’ll have an opportunity to write in response to their letter about themselves to tell them just that.
We hope we can count on you to make this summer the most memorable yet.
