REI was proud to be a hole sponsor for Swing for A Child’s Place golf charity event on May 13 at River Run Country Club in Davidson, NC.
Over $100,000 was raised to help send 160 homeless children to a 6 week summer camp where they will receive two hot meals daily in a safe, fun and educational environment for the summer. The camp affords these at risk children activities and summer fun that should be a part of every kid’s summer experience.
A Child’s Place (www.achildsplace.org) works to remove the barriers that exist in the lives of homeless children to attain their education and make school the most stable part of their lives. ACP provides educational and emotional support services as well as medical referrals to keep client children healthy and in the classroom.
