What is #GivingTuesday? We have Thanksgiving Day for giving thanks. We have Black Friday and Cyber Monday for getting bargains. Now, we a global day dedicated to giving back – #GivingTuesday. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give to their favorite nonprofits/organizations. Camp Maria Retreat Center hopes we will be yours.

Camp Maria Retreat Center hosts a variety of groups/ families/ organizations/special children camps/vets/etc. Over the last year we have noticed that we are hosting/supporting many more groups who are run by other non-profit organization/churches/community services. These groups are supporting people who need that extra boost to keep their lives in a positive direction, such as: Special Love’s BRASS Camp for siblings of cancer patients, Vacation 4 Vets who brings hospitalized vets together with their familes for a weekend of togetherness, Foster Children Camp run by the St. Mary’s Co. Social Services department, various training programs run by Walden, W.A.R.M. Program that provides meals and a warm place to stay during the cold months in St. Mary’s Co. for the homeless, and a new group, Camp Crazy Faith, sponsored by a local church, that addresses the needs of K – 12th graders who might not get the chance to get away for a time at camp. Camp Maria Retreat Center tries to support them by offering some monetary support and additional donations of time, talents and service of our staff to enrich the groups. If we had more funds for this purpose, we could reach out to other such groups to come to Camp Maria Retreat Center for their programs.

Why should you give to Camp Maria Retreat Center on #GivingTuesday 2017? To help us to help other – the above mentioned groups, and other organizations who have as their goal to reach out and support God’s people. We are ecumenical in the people we serve – that is clearly stated in our Mission.

This is our 2017 #GivingTuesday project! Help us to help others who are in need of a boost up! Our Goal for #GivingTuesday ? To reach out and connect with more people to share our story of Camp Maria Retreat Center. And to invite all to donate to help us help those who need just a little bit more support to hold their programs at Camp Maria Retreat Center.
