Dear Community Partner,
As a community we share in the COVID19 crisis together. Our mission at the JCC Princeton Mercer Bucks is to help in rebuilding our community and strengthen people's lives. We do this through social enrichment and engagement -- such as summer camp. In July, the JCC Abrams Camps will do something we could have never predicted. Reimagine our "typical camp season" to a summer of first responders welcoming our children and staff back into society.
The reentry for children to society
For most, camp serves as essential childcare and as we look to return to some assemblance of normalcy, camp can help us find our footing again. We will put 80 people back to work and help our children adjust to their new normal of social distancing, facial coverings and best hygiene practices to combat the deadly demon of COVID19. Our staff will be prepared and trained to watch for emotional stress caused by their quarantine and ready to aid with easing their anxieties as a result of any trauma that their families have endured. Our goal is to rebuild their self-confidence through new experiences in a safe warm camp culture.
Essentials for the road back
In order to take on this courageous task, our non-profit has to adapt to new health and safety protocols from top medical and environmental experts in consultation with our local, state and federal guidelines. Some of immediate needs are electrostatic cleaners, facial coverings, hand sanitation supplies, outdoor hand washing stations, new Health Center with isolation rooms, additional nursing and mental health professionals and bountiful PPE medical supplies.
This all comes at a great expense, but we will not quit on these families. Can you partner with us through a grant or donation to help us open safely?
Camp is needed now more than ever. Please consider helping us rebuild our community one step at a time.
Stay safe, healthy and strong,
