Madison, NJ 07940 (map)
Hurricane Sandy may seem to be little more than an unpleasant memory, but the damage it caused continues to interfere with the lives of the children of Union Beach, New Jersey. Madison's commitment to the well being and reconstruction of Union Beach remains strong, and this summer we are hoping that we can count on your help again.
Last year, the people of Madison sent 48 of Union Beach's children to summer camp with the kind assistance of the Madison YMCA and this year, we hope to be able to offer the same experience to even more children. We have set a goal of raising $60,000 and are well on our way, but we'd like to ask for your help. Once again, the Madison YMCA has secured discounted rates for Union Beach's children at 3 camps: Camp Speers-Eljabar YMCA, the Frost Valley YMCA Camp and the Fairview Lakes YMCA Camp. Please send any amount you can comfortably afford to the Madison YMCA, along with a letter identifying the donation as funds for Campathon 2014. 100% of the funds donated to Campathon 2014 will pay for these discounted 'camperships.'
