A team for CAMP BLESSING TEXAS
The Terry Scholars around Texas are coming together to raise money for Camp Blessing, a camp for Special Needs!
The Terry Scholars are a group of college students around Texas that have been blessed with the generosity of the Terry Foundation. Nine schools in Texas currently have the Terry Foundation Scholarship. Each year, a cause is chosen to donate to in order to give back.
This year, Camp Blessing Texas has been chosen to raise money for. Camp Blessing is a camp that is designed to provide people with various special needs a chance to be the star and to be accepted. Casey Elliott, a Texas State University Terry Scholar who was on staff at Camp Blessing, had this to say, "I have never seen so many genuine smiles in one place. Every week, each camper had the opportunity to do a zip line, water slide, have a food fight, and so many other activities that they wouldn't normally do. It is an amazing thing to watch: a child doing something that they have been told they could never do. Camp Blessing is truely life changing!"
They money donated to Camp Blessing will be going towards camper scholarships. Different special needs come with enormous costs for doctors, therapys, and adaptive equipment. Camp can not always make the budget for families with special needs. The Terry Scholars are going to donate the money raised towards these special campers that can not afford the cost of camp. One camper scholarship costs $545 and any little donation towards our goal helps!
