It is crazy to think that the school year is over and summer is here. At Hope House Montgomery, we serve eleven students from kindergarten to fifth grade in our afterschool reading program. We also support many other students in our community. Our goal is to increase our support each year.
Many of our students live in stressed circumstances, supported by a single parent who works all year. Summer brings on a new stress of figuring out how to pay for daycare or day camps—even more of a struggle is leaving older children to watch each other. I can think of several of my own sibling stories :-)
This summer, we would like to offer scholarships to our community families to help pay for or offset the cost of a week of camp. Day camp ranges from $25.00 to $50.00 daily or $125.00 to $250.00 weekly.
We need your help! Supplementing camp was not in our budget this year, so we are hoping to raise around $2,500.00 through the generous support of our friends and family.
Please consider donating to HHM to help pay for a day, days, or a week. Any amount would be appreciated.
You can donate by clicking the button on the website, and please put “camp” in the note or comment section. You can also send a check to HHM, 430 Polk Street, Montgomery, AL 36107
Thank you friends!
