TheZone, our summer camp with two locations in the Catskills, is now in full swing. While we fund many programs for children and their families, this is the pinnacle of the work we do. It’s something we work toward, all year, and we get very excited when camp finally opens. The stories float around the office of children growing and maturing, trying new activities and making new friends. Photos and videos help make it real to us.
In some ways, it seems strange to us that everything we do with running our office, handling the phone lines, and of course, processing donations, comes down to sending kids to camp. Helping children grow and self-actualize and reach their fullest potential is our only goal. Watching it happen, then, is the best part of the year. And it’s why we do what we do.
When our CEO, Eli Mintz, started Kars4Kids, we were already providing mentoring and educational programs for children. But such programs cost money. Mintz thought to do something in house that would generate revenue to support these programs. Car donation turned out to be a good and successful solution, and we were able to step up our game and help even more children and families be the best they can be.
Here are some photos that illustrate and offer a taste of the fruits of our labor here at Kars4Kids and it is very sweet fruit, indeed:
