ABLE Families of Kermit, West Virginia, is our newest partner, and this summer we are proud to report that thanks to our generous supporters we were able to help send dozens of kids to camp operated by the grassroots nonprofit organization.

Each year, thanks to our generous supporters, we are able to provide hundreds of children throughout Appalachia with a fun-filled adventure at a summer camp where they enjoy participating in arts and crafts projects, take part in educational activities where they continue learning – perhaps without even realizing it – and, of course, are served meals and snacks that they likely would not be getting at home.

In fact, ABLE Families operates six or seven separate camps throughout the summer that offer a variety of enriching activities to keep children thinking, exercising, and eating well. Past camps have covered cooking, outdoor living, books, music, drama, dance, water safety, ecology, and various other topics.

Our new partnership with ABLE Families began this summer with a grant made possible by our supporters to assist the organization with the operation of its camps and just by looking at this photo of all these girls and young women in their Camp Appalachia t-shirts shows it was money well invested.
