KNIGHT and MALONE: Camp Good Grief possible through community support

MILLEDGEVILLE — Thanks to the Community

 

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.

Northside Baptist is our host, and they are wonderful folks to work with who make it a pleasant experience for us. WMU member from Black Springs Baptist donated fruit and breakfast bars for morning break. Milledgeville Wal-Mart donated an in-store card that help provided some breakfast bars for morning break and a few craft items. Black Springs Baptist WMU Group gave a donation to purchase lunch the first day. Northside Baptist provided lunch the second day. Beulah Baptist gave a donation to purchase pizza for the closing lunch and Chaplinwood Nursing Home provided cookies for the closing lunch. Project Linus Milledgeville and Macon  and also Needles for Jesus Milledgeville donated enough blankets for us to give one to each camper. Pet Therapy dogs were provided each day by Therapy Dogs and Horse Dreams provide horses for pet therapy. Baldwin County Fire and Rescue gave the children a presentation on the clothing and equipment firemen wears to fight fires. Mark Gordy with Georgia Power shared his expertise on water safety. Tri-County EMC gave a presentation on electricity.

Milledgeville Police Department gave presentation on being safe, obeying laws and trusting a police officer for help. The Milledgeville Police Department also gave a tour of the police car. We had 23 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.
