HUMC Mission with a Purpose: Our mission theme for the third quarter of the year is Education with our focus being The Neighborhood Center in Camden.
Summer camp, Camp Kumbaya is just beginning at the Neighborhood Center for over a hundred children in need of care, love and fun for the entire summer. The Center has had it challenges this year by many new tasks: hiring more staff, buying new equipment and learning new procedures to keep everyone healthy and safe. But just like always, the children will find what they always have found there: stability, community and a place where they belong, just as they are. The camp is also vital for parents so that they can return to work to support their families.
With your help we can support Camp Kumbaya in the following ways. We ask that you prayerfully consider how you can help us raise the funds to support one or more of these goals. We will continue collect for Camp Kumbaya until Sunday, August 16.
$50 – to provide activity materials for learning
$150 – to provide one meal for the summer camp program
$400 – to assist with safe sanitation practices for the children
$900 – to sponsor a Counselor in Training
$1800 – to cover the cost of one child to attend summer camp
Ways you can give:
- Through your general giving check to HUMC – note the amount you want designated to the Neighborhood Center
- Through a separate check to HUMC – noted for Missions: Neighborhood Center
- Through our online giving service – designate the amount you want to give to the Neighborhood Center.
We thank you in advance for your continued support to our special outreach ministries and for your prayers for Camp Kumbaya, the Neighborhood Center of Camden. For over 100 years they have been a beacon of light to the community.
