Here’s what’s happened - Monday morning we arrived to see our 38 year old commercial fridge no longer working. The temperature gauge was reading 30 degrees Celsius!
It’s urgent that you help right away. Pearce Williams strives to help children and families be able to afford the summer camp experience by hosting various rental groups during the rest of the year. The income from these groups keeps the cost of camp within reach to the families in your community. This fridge is needed so that rental groups continue to use Pearce Williams for their events and help fund summer camp for your local community.
Your gift will provide fresh food to campers so that they can have fun at camp. Your gift will give numerous rental groups a space to come and be in community, while helping to keep the cost of camp lower for camper families. Your gift will also support all the work of Pearce Williams.
Children need to have a space to run, play & discover.
Children need to get outside.
Children need Summer Camp.
Emma wakes up to a cold apartment, an empty fridge and not knowing when she will eat, the cost of food is out of reach for her family. Emma cuddles with her stuffed elephant trying to remember a better time. Emma’s mommy is trying to give her a happy childhood, but her part-time job does not allow for sports or extra activities, or even the basics.
Emma’s family is struggling - our community is struggling.
