Foster Grandparents spend summer at Camp Sunshine
This summer, seven Foster Grandparents are volunteering at Camp Sunshine, an eight-week day camp for individuals with physical, intellectual or developmental disabilities sponsored by the Richland County Recreation Commission.
The camp is an opportunity for children with a diverse set of special needs to have fun with structured activities. The Foster Grandparents nurture the campers by holding their hands and helping keep them calm and safe. They additionally serve as door monitors and assist with feeding the campers.
We are grateful to Foster Grandparents Emma Addison, Lillie Anderson, Mattie Bookhart, Patricia Grant, Dorothy Johnson, Thelma Miller and Inez Speaks, who are giving of their hearts and time this summer to support and encourage disabled children.
