NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
On behalf of the leadership team of New Castle’s Royal Family Kids’ Camp, I would like to extend heartfelt appreciation to the community for its recent support of the movie “Camp” that played at Westgate Cinemas from April 12 to May 2.
Nearly 700 members of the community went to support the film and learn more about Royal Family Kids’ Camp, with 40 percent of ticket sales benefiting our local camp. Westgate Cinemas was extremely accommodating and helpful throughout the duration of the film’s stay.
The film depicts the plight of abused and neglected children who are offered a one-week camp experience through the Royal Family Kids organization, filled with positive memories and the love of caring adults. The national organization has been in existence since 1986, and more than 46,000 abused and neglected children have been served through these experiences.
Locally, roughly 170 children are eligible to attend camp each year, and many have been served since our local camp began in 2006.
New Castle’s RFKC involves volunteers from many local churches, businesses and colleges. These volunteers make it possible for children who are referred through children and youth services to enjoy a life-changing experience at no cost to them.
One hundred percent of the funds raised locally are used for the local camp. There are no administrative costs and every staff member is a volunteer.
For those who have attended the film and want to learn more about New Castle’s Royal Family Kids’ Camp, or are interested in getting involved or donating, more information can be found by contacting Jackie Boyles, child placement coordinator and secretary, at (724) 658-2735, or at Royal Family Kids’ Camps Inc., www.rfkc.org; New Castle RFKC, www.newcastle.rfkc.org; or via email at email@example.com
