Summer Camp Fundraiser!

Help Newton Neighbors Helping Neighbors send 15 – 20 students to camp this summer.

While camp scholarships do pay up to 80% of the cost, too many families can not afford the 20% – 30% payment required of them. Through this fundraiser NNHN has already raised $4,500 to help Newton school children continue to socialize, play and learn with their friends this summer, however as the word has spread, they have learned about more needs.

There is an amazing program – a collaboration between METCO and Newton Community Ed – to fund and sponsor 75 students to attend camp this summer. This program is $6,700 short of their need to cover the transportation and two-week camp costs for 6 more NPS students and NNHN hopes to help.

For every additional $1,100 raised, they can cover the cost for one more camper. For more information and donation links please visit the NCP sponsor link. And, for more about the METCO/NCE program click here Camp.
