Charities and Services Ballot – May 2013

BALLOT #1—-PASSED!  

Funding:

Camp Fire Northwest Ohio is an education based summer camp for children of all socio-economic backgrounds that focuses on retaining educational learning over the summer months by combining learning with hands on, interactive activities and quality local fieldtrips.  This successful program intends to serve at least 140 area youth this summer and the organization is asking Findlay Service League to supplement some of the cost of this program with a donation of $500.

C&S is recommending FSL funds the Camp Fire Summer Camp in the full amount of the request for $500.

Rational:

1.       Opportunity to serve a large amount of families in the area

2.      Opportunity to fund an organization we have not donated to in the past
