Donate to the Press Telegram’s Send-A- Kid-to-Camp Fund

July 2019 – We are currently accepting donations to the Send-A-Kid-To-Camp fund.

“Summer camp in Southern California’s mountains may be only two hours away by car, but they might as well be a thousand miles away to underserved children whose families simply can’t afford to send them to a week at a summer camp. But that’s where you come in.” Read Rich Archibold’s full Press Telegram article
