Gazette-Mail Charities is working to help those in need with its 21st Send-A-Child-to-Camp Fund. Throughout its existence, the fund, with the assistance of generous newspaper readers, has helped send more than 10,000 kids to summer camp.

These are kids who might not have otherwise had a chance for a summer-camp experience. Starting soon, the Gazette-Mail will tell the stories of the camps being supported this year by Gazette-Mail Charities. Please consider a donation today!
