Salvation Army Looking for "Angels" to Sponsor Local Children



Children from the Northwest Community Center Summer Camp on a pool outing

West Palm Beach, FL (26 April 2010) -  Hiking in the woods, learning how to weave a lanyard, singing songs by the campfire -- some of our fondest childhood memories come from summer camp. For the neediest children in Palm Beach County, these simple joys seem unattainable. These at-risk kids will spend their summer wandering the mean streets or hanging out with other idle kids -- many of them bad influences… a recipe for trouble.  

But The Salvation Army can help struggling local families avoid such an outcome for their children. Last year in the United States, thousands of children attended some 48 Salvation Army residential camps. "It's an experience not to be missed," observes Palm Beach County Area Commander Major Thomas McWilliams. "Time spent at camp can be a life-changing experience for kids. It can instill feelings of self-worth, open up the world and offer hope for the future."        

Area Commander, Major McWilliams reports that last summer the citizens of Palm Beach County gave this precious gift of overnight camp to 120 local children some of whom had never in their lives experienced the wonders of nature. In addition to overnight camp, The Salvation Army provided four day camps in Palm Beach County to nearly 120 more local children.  Through donations, underprivileged kids got to go to camps where they played sports, swam, explored the outdoors and made crafts in additional to summer day camps.  And beyond the recreation, with the help of trained counselors they learned how to get along with a diverse group of neighbors, dealing with the troubling issues and concerns that challenge them in their daily lives.        

"We are so grateful to our friends who sponsored these children," he says. "What a difference their generosity made in these children's lives. The kids not only enjoyed nutritious meals and explored the great outdoors, they learned new life-skills and got to interact with caring adults who listened to them and showed them love and concern.  

The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County is currently seeking sponsorship for local children to attend summer camp in 2010. "School will be ending soon," Major McWilliams points out. "There are lots of spots left and not enough money to fill them. I hope the community will come through for these deserving kids. For many of them, it's the highlight of the whole year."
