Giving Tuesday 2017 - Noon Update
November 28, 2017
It has been such an exciting day already! It’s just noon, and so far we’ve raised an astonishing $18,395! As I was telling one camp family this morning, this is a tremendously humbling experience to see the depth of love and care so many have for this place.
But we aren’t done yet. As we reached our $10,000 matching grant, I reached out to a long-time donor and asked if we could somehow keep going. So we did. So we matched another $5,000. And you all quickly blew past that goal as well.
And yet, we still aren’t done. We’ve had a donor reach out to us to offer a third matching grant for an additional $5,000. We are on our way towards matching $20,000! And I’m confident this isn’t the end. The generosity of God’s people is a remarkable thing to witness.
For those wondering, if we were to exceed the cost of the roof replacement, there is always a need and plan. Most importantly, surplus funds would help us insure that camper scholarships will always provide a path for anyone who wants to experience camp, can. We will also continue looking at improving the audio/visual equipment in Amphlett Hall so we can more easily present digital media, have a permanent sound system so even a full dining hall can hear, and projection so we can share video clips and photos to help enrich faith-growing experiences. We never have a shortage of ways to continue grow the ministry at camp!
If you haven’t given yet, now’s the time! If you have, who else do you know who wants to be part of this successful effort?
Thanks for partnering with Pine Lake Camp and the Board of Camp & Retreat Ministries today!
