Colorado Gives Day
We need your help Tuesday, December 8, 2020. Please mark your calendars for Colorado Gives Day. Colorado Gives is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Donations are accepted through ColoradoGives.org.
This camp means so much to our campers. Many of our campers come from group homes and do not have adequate support. Each camper has a different story. To them, attending camp is as important as their birthday or Christmas, all rolled into one. This is a destination where campers are celebrated for their differences. Our year-round residential respite camp programs have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our summer camp and weekend respite programs, where we serve over 400 individuals with varying disabilities each year, were canceled or severely impacted.
We need your help. Much of our funding comes from donations received through our Lions Clubs, individual donations, as well as service agencies. Due to the necessary quarantine measures, our donations have dropped tremendously. Our Lions Clubs are unable to host fundraisers because of the limited number of individuals allowed to gather and they are unsure of when they will be able to safely meet again. With your help, we would be able to financially assist our campers and families with the cost of camp.
It is important for campers and their families to receive a break. The past five months have been tough, but we are staying positive and look forward to providing quality programs to the campers whom we love so much. We are asking if you are in a position, to contribute as little as $5, $20, $50, or $100 to this fundraiser. Our goal is to raise $5,000 to provide that much needed “rest” for our campers and their families. They need it more than ever during this time.

We continue to thank our community, fellow family, friends, and lions. We thank you for your continued support, love, and enthusiasm!
