Help send Richmond’s children to summer camp Join Miss Community Clovia on Radio One stations Thursday, May 10, 2012 to pledge your support. You can help send a Richmond child to summer camp, as well as hear some of your favorite music, by contributing to the Richmond Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities’ annual Send-a-Kid-to-Camp Radiothon.

Residents are asked to call between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. on May 10 to make a donation to the Send-a-Kid-to-Camp Campaign, and for any donation of $20 or more; the caller can have their favorite song played on KISS 105.7/ 99.3 FM or iPOWER 92.1 FM. In addition, anyone who makes a donation for the full summer camp fee of $225 will receive (2) two free tickets to the June 2nd Stone Soul Music and Food Festival on Brown’s Island.
All donations are tax deductable and will help pay for city children to have an exciting and educational summer camp experience. In return, callers will have the satisfaction of knowing that they have made a difference in the life of a Richmond child.
The Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities’ summer camp program offers nine weeks of structured activities for children ages 6 – 12, Monday – Friday from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm starting June 25 and continuing through Aug. 24.
Children enrolled in the camp are immersed in fun activities each day that include art and cultural enrichment, health and physical education, science and environmental education, and personal and social development as well as field trips. The camp is offered at 15 department community centers throughout the city and costs $225 per child for city residents; however, donations from the annual radiothon are used to provide scholarships for those who need them. It is part of the department’s promise to make the camp available to and affordable for all children in the city of Richmond.
In addition to the May 10 radiothon, donations can be made anytime. Please send donations to: Enrichmond Foundation Send-a-Kid-to-Camp Campaign 900 East Broad Street, Room 407 Richmond, VA 23219.
Please make checks and money orders payable to Enrichmond/Send-A-Kid-to-Camp. The annual radiothon is co-sponsored by the department, Radio One and Enrichmond, a non-profit foundation that partners with community groups to maintain, restore, preserve and improve Richmond’s public recreational resources. For more information on the annual radiothon, call (804) 646-5733.
