Woodforest Charitable Foundation Donates $3,750 to Indian Summer Camp
LOUISVILLE, Kentucky – Woodforest Charitable Foundation presents Indian Summer Camp with a $3,750 donation.
Woodforest Charitable Foundation’s recent donation will help support Indian Summer Camp in their endeavor to afford children with cancer the chance to create positive, lasting memories.
Indian Summer Camp is a loving community that offers an extraordinary opportunity to influence the lives of young, childhood cancer patients. Since its inception in 1982, Indian Summer Camp has provided children with cancer ages six to 18, as well as cancer survivors, an opportunity to be a kid again. Campers are surrounded with other children who are all too familiar with words like chemotherapy, radiation and doctor’s appointments. The children are able to make friends, laugh, and perhaps even forget the word cancer. The Camp offers activities not easily provided at home or in medical institutions. Also, a full medical staff is on hand during the entire session in the event any of the children develop a need for medical attention. Some campers even take their normal chemotherapy treatments in the camp's medical station. To date, there are over 90 kids attending the weeklong camp at a cost of over $70,000. “Indian Summer Camp is completely free to these children and it is only because of people and/or organizations like yours that make it possible,” said Greg Gitschier, Executive Director of Indian Summer Camp. “Again, we thank you for your support.”
