Heepwah and Thank You!
Last fall, Senior Lodge Official Isabelle Linn and her family reached out to Teen and Young Adult Lodge Members asking that they help Camp with an important act of service through the Lodge Letter Writing Campaign. They sent an email with a sample request letter along with a Gift Response Form that made it easy to reach out to family and friends asking for support during a difficult financial year for Camp. The loss of income from the cancellation of summer camp and other Outdoor Education programs as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic severely impacted Camp in 2020. The Letter Writing Campaign was a way for Lodge members to directly help in fundraising efforts.
Two Lodge members stepped up in a major way and accepted the challenge! They sent letters to their family and friends, letting them know how Camp has affected their lives and what it means to them to be part of Camp’s Family.
Molly Braskich from the Chicago Council and Mallary Vasquez from the Tri-State Council undertook this important act of service to Camp Ondessonk, as they spread the word about a place they love. Their participation as Lodge members helped Camp reach and exceed its fundraising goal for 2020!
Sincere thanks to the Linn Family, Molly, and Mallary for their work in making the Lodge Letter Writing Campaign a success.
