JournalBooks Sends Children to Camp and Donates Journals
JournalBooks/Timeplanner Calendars, Charlotte, N.C., a leading provider of promotional journals, gave back to the community by sending local children to camp as well as donating journals to the Circle Camps programs and the local YMCA.
For the past several years JournalBooks has raised funds for campers and donated journals to the Circle Camps. The Circle Camps are a week-long overnight camp program for girls between the ages of 9 and 16, who have experienced the death of a parent. Their program is a place for children to find healing and understanding along with others going through similar experiences.
“The beautiful journals JournalBooks donates to our campers year after year become instant treasures, whether the girls write or draw in them, or simply put them under their pillows,” said Sandi Welch, founder and president of Circle Camps. “All of the campers at Circle Camps have experienced the death of a parent or sibling; a journal becomes something different in the hands of a grieving girl. To young girls who are often isolated by their losses, any means of expression becomes invaluable as they work through their grief. The campers at Circle of Tapawingo in Maine, CircleWest in California and Circle of EKC in West Virginia thank you for your many years of generosity.”
In addition to donating to the Circle Camps, part of the JournalBooks team visited the local YMCA camp, a strong literacy development branch, and distributed journals to both the children and senior citizen campers.
