Message from the President

I am pleased to announce we have been working with the Palladino Auto Group (PAG) to create an exciting community alliance that is now up and running.

"We wouldn't have been able to run a successful Camp-at-Home program without the $10,000 donation from the United Steelworkers Local Union 6500.  Because of you, we were able to deliver 55 Camp-at-Home boxes and put on an engaging, educational, and meaningful camp program for kids and families affected by childhood cancer and blood disorders"  -- Camp Quality
