After a successful year with their mentors from Bruce Irons Camp Fund, Angel and Tony earned trips to sleepaway camp through that organization.
But with their mom already struggling to make ends meet, the long supply list was a bit daunting. Fortunately, they were able to shop at Crisis Assistance Ministry free-of-charge for flashlights, swimsuits, pajamas, towels, water shoes, toiletries, summer clothes, and more.
“This is a lifesaver,” their mom said. Without this help, both kids might not have been able to go this year.
Their favorite items? Angel’s fleece snuggie and Tony’s oh-so-soft full-length robe, perfect for the cool mountain nights at camp.
Each day, an average of 80 families like theirs shop for essentials, allowing them to redirect income toward vital expenses like housing, utilities, transportation, and food.
