Altru Health Foundation to Participate in Giving Hearts Day 2015
Altru Health Foundation will participate in Giving Hearts Day, a 24-hour online fund raising event on February 12. Donations of $10 or more made to Altru Health Foundation at impactgiveback.org on this day will be matched up to $5,000, courtesy of Dakota Medical Foundation. All proceeds raised will benefit Altru’s Camp Good Mourning, a grief camp for kids and teens.
“Camp Good Mourning is 100 percent funded through the generosity of our communities, so I’m thrilled it has been chosen as the beneficiary for Giving Hearts Day,” says Sue Mairs, camp director of Altru’s Camp Good Mourning. “Every year at camp we’re able to help around 50 kids and teens cope with the grief of losing a loved one. Each generous gift goes a long way in supporting our mission.”
Altru’s Camp Good Mourning is a three day grief camp held annually in June at Park River Bible Camp. Gifts help cover the costs of running the camp, including lodging, meals, therapeutic activities, and camp scholarships for kids and teens whose those who are financially eligible. No child is ever turned away from camp because a family can’t afford it.
