We have been longstanding in the Middlesex community offering free services to underserved youth and seniors. Each year we send an end of year letter sharing some of the happenings of the year and offering an opportunity to make an end of year donation. We are looking for a last minute volunteer to make a picture collage postcard which includes information on how to donate. Ideally we would like to send out the mailing no later than November 21st so we do understand we are asking a lot for a last minute project.
We currently have a logo and pictures which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a sample that was created but hoping someone could perfect for us and the ability to provide any other information you need.
We have been around since 1924, offering free services to over 700 youth and seniors annually!
Middlesex County Recreation Council is a private, non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization that provides a residential camping experience for underprivileged and/or health impaired children and seniors from Middlesex County, New Jersey. Our mission is to develop and nurture responsible social expression, self-esteem, physical health, mental well-being and other sustainable life skills through a holistic approach and diverse programming. We strive to offer this opportunity to at-risk populations who
Our camp program is called the Kiddie Keep Well Camp or KKWC. We serve children between the ages of seven and fifteen from low-income families, who often have limited access to health care, preventative education and recreational activities that promote a healthy lifestyle. The seniors who participate in the camp’s program often come from vulnerable situations, often with lack of direct support. The programming combines educational, recreational, and health-focused activities to implement its comprehensive program. KKWC offers traditional camp activities such as swimming, arts and crafts, sports, nature, campfires, dance and drama. In addition to a large number of corporate volunteers who assist us in getting the camp ready each summer through camp maintenance and housekeeping, KKWC has many great community partners. Through in-kind services donated by our longstanding partners, each camper receives a medical and dental exam. In addition, the campers are offered a nutrition and dental hygiene education during each camp session. If additional work is needed, free dental exams are available for those campers that require it. In addition to these health-beneficial activities, the social worker on staff provides individual and group workshops to address interpersonal and intrapersonal issues with the campers. Some of these character-building workshops include anger-management, self-esteem, internet awareness, bullying and other character-building skills. At KKWC, camp is a positive and enriching experience where all participants benefit physically, emotionally, and mentally through active participation in the camp’s programming.
