Thank you for helping Camp Good Grief

The Union-Recorder

MILLEDGEVILLE — Thank you for the articles in your paper about Camp Good Grief. They were a great help to us in getting the word out to the surrounding communities.

We had a very successful camp and could not have done it without the wonderful support from the community. There are so many people whose contributions aided our work that we would like to thank them publicly, and we hope we do not overlook anyone.

Creekside Elementary is our host, and they are wonderful folks to work with who make it a pleasant experience for us. Save A Lot donated fruit for morning break, hot dogs for lunch and hamburgers for the closing ceremony lunch. Kroger donated a $15 gift certificate to purchase fruit for the last morning break. Project Linus Milledgeville and Needles for Jesus Milledgeville donated enough blankets for us to give one to each camper. Dogs were provided each day by pet therapy owners of Milledgeville. Mark Gordy with Georgia Power shared his expertise on water safety.

We had 22 awesome volunteers who worked with the campers, led activities, worked in the kitchen, set up registration and countless other things behind the scenes that made camp successful. We couldn’t possibly do this camp without them and the contributions of this wonderful community.
