WEST CHESTER TWP. - The Community Foundation of West Chester /Liberty is seeking donations for its "Kids 2 Kamp" program, entering its second year.

"Kids 2 Kamp" gives children in the Lakota School District who could not otherwise afford it the opportunity to go to summer camp. This past summer, the program sent 20 kids to Camp Campbell Gard Center and 10 to Lakota YMCA day camp.

"That's what we're about - connecting those who care with causes that matter," said Katie Braswell, executive director of the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty.

Day camp (Lakota YMCA) costs $100 per week per child and overnight camp (Camp Campbell Gard) costs $375 per week per child.

For information, call the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty at (513) 874-5450.
