When You Wish Upon A Star...
Every year at about this time, we are asked to compile our Annual Wish List for the community. We’re always in need of good quality equipment, supplies and materials for Camp. Although almost any gift would be welcome, below you will find a list of our current needs. We are putting this list out on the blog so that maybe if YOU have one of these items, you can help us out!
|Left: One of our old backboards, in need of repair (2011)|
Right: The Papes/Adama Family in front of a wish-turned-reality,
one of our new basketball backboard!
Last year, the Adama/Papes Families saw our list and decided to work together to provide Camp with two new backboards as a way to give to others as a family during the Holiday season. The result was a tangible difference at Pendalouan that will be enjoyed by campers for years to come!
If you're able to help camp acquire anything on the Wish List, please email Mark Olson, Alumni & Development Director or contact us at the office at (231) 894-4538. We've already heard rumors of a gorilla suit being donated after this year's Halloween Season...
