On February 17, 2019, members of Wooster Firefighters Local 764 attended the winter Aluminum Cans for Burned Children Camp. This was our 10th year assisting with camp and our largest participation. Eleven members of Local 764 attended. We served homemade macaroni and cheese and participated in many activities. Members played ping-pong, UNO, 4square and assisted in art projects.
The ACBC program serves pediatric victims of fire, ages 5 to 16 years of age. The program provides a summer and winter camp for 25 to 30 children annually. The camps are held in February and August each year and last 3 days each. They are each held at Camp Cheerful in Strongsville, Ohio. We traditionally cook breakfast for the children and counselors. We also help in many different activities from horseback riding to skiing and anything in between. These camps provide them with an atmosphere of support and care. Throughout the years of Wooster's attendance, we have seen these children grow. They grow both in size but most importantly in confidence. These camps are made possible by our communities' generous donations.
Thank you for your continued support and contributions.
