Representatives from National Recycling Operations thrift stores in Ontario visited the Ontario Central-East Division's camp in Jackson's Point, Ont., in July to present a cheque for $22,462 to help send children to camp. Present for the occasion were Maria Guayacan and Priscilla Jogaratnam, retail district managers, and Michelle Sanelli and Shaney Cannon, store managers.

The money was collected through generous donations made by customers at thrift stores during this year's Send a Kid to Camp fundraiser. The donation represents the fee required for 102 children to spend a week at either Jackson's Point Camp or Camp Newport, located in Huntsville, Ont.
“A week at camp is an exciting experience for the kids. They swim, make crafts and engage in such activities as archery, canoeing and mountain biking,” says Captain Stephen White, divisional youth secretary, Ontario Central-East Division.
