Helping America's Most Vulnerable

Camp POSTCARD Wishlist

Here's how you can help!

CAMP POSTCARD 2017 WISH LIST

HOW CAN I HELP?

Every year the Camp POSTCARD team works hard to provide the necessary camping supplies to help our kids have a wonderful camping experience. A number of children arrive at camp with very little. We provide them with new items that they can use for the week and take home with them at the end of camp.

We rely on donations from supporters like you to help us meet our goals !

If you or your organization thinks that any of these items are things you would be able to donate, please let us know! Contact Michael Coon at 207-373-1140 for more info.

EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS!
