Thursday, March 28, 2019 by CONTRIBUTED ARTICLE in Local News

Goal of phase one to raise $200,000

The Board of Directors of Camelot for Children recently announced the commencement of their capital campaign, with a goal of raising $500,000 over the next two years.

Phase one of the capital campaign will occur throughout 2019 and will be focused on raising funds for improvements to their campus located in Allentown.

The first phase of the capital campaign is concentrated on improving the safety and accessibility of Camelot’s 11-acre campus.

This will include the demolition of the existing parking lot, overall improvement of the parking area as well as creating a handicapped accessible basketball facility.

These enhancements will allow the children served by Camelot to continue to benefit from and enjoy the facilities.

“We are very excited to be kicking off our capital campaign in 2019. Camelot for Children has grown substantially and, as a result, has experienced its strongest year in over a decade from an operational standpoint,” Board of Directors President Mark Jaindl stated. “We are operating efficiently so that we can continue to provide quality programming for our children and their families. Now is the time for us to focus on improving our facilities so that we can continue our mission and serve more families in the future.”

Camelot for Children is a nonprofit organization providing year-round social and educational opportunities to children with disabilities and chronic or terminal illnesses in a supportive, developmentally appropriate, enriching environment in order to make the magic of childhood accessible to children with unique needs.
