Wishing Well Yields Money for Kids 2 Camp
As part of The Lights of Christmas, there is a wishing well set up near Cedar Lodge, and a reflecting pond on the lawn in front of the Lodge. Each year, people at The Lights throw coins into these ponds, and we collect the money for the Kids 2 Camp fund.
At the end of The Lights this year, we collected the coins, dried them off and counted them. The total came to $560!
Thousands of dollars are raised every year for Kids 2 Camp scholarships to send kids to camp, and much of it comes in the form of small gifts from individuals. But it all adds up! And every penny counts. This includes the ones thrown into the ponds at The Lights! Next summer, several children will be able to attend summer camp because of the spare change people throw into the wishing well at The Lights of Christmas.
To all of you who gave to the Kids 2 Camp fund this past year, thank you for making this program possible. Thanks for helping to send children to camp where they can have a fun experience in a loving and caring environment, and have the opportunity to hear the Gospel of Christ. It does make a difference!
