Union Beach Campathon
Madison Town Wide Garage Sale & Seton Hall Prep Flea Market
Saturday, April 20, 2013
Join with the Borough of Madison in our town's efforts to assist Union Beach New Jersey in their continued recovery after Hurricane Sandy.
The Borough of Madison Partnership with Union Beach is reaching out to our community to support sending Union Beach children to area YMCA Summer Camps. The lives of the children continue to be disrupted by the effects of Superstorm Sandy as families continue to rebuild and find a sense of normalcy. A week of summer camp will provide some of these children with a week away to enjoy some fun,and get a break from the ongoing sense of loss and disruption to their lives. Three YMCA camps have offered to join with this Madison Community initiative:
- Camp Spears- Eljabar YMCA Camps
- Fairview Lake YMCA Camp
- Frost Valley YMCA Camp
Over 50 families from Union Beach have expressed an interest in sending children to one of these camps. As a community, we would like to provide the financial support to provide a week away for these children. The camps have offered significant discounts, so each campership will cost approximately $650.00. By participating in the town-wide garage sale on April 20,2013, you can designate a percentage of your earnings to this very wonderful cause. Whether it be $5.00 or $50.00, every dollar will go toward these camperships. How fortunate we are to have the ability to provide these children with a "break" from the relentless effects of Super Storm Sandy.
