Our Savior is hosting Camp J.O.Y. (Jesus, Others, Yourself), a 6-week day camp focused on spiritual and developmental growth for area children. After any community tragedy, children are often scared, confused, and looking for stability and comfort. Camp J.O.Y. seeks to provide that stability and comfort through faith-focused personal development for children.
With massive changes in the economy, Camp J.O.Y. has had to hire four additional staff members and cover more expenses than usual in order to make sure that community children are supported. This additional cost has become a hardship for a ministry that has impacted the community of Buffalo for many years, bringing faith and personal development to a generation of children who need it most.
These additional expenses amount to almost $60,000 to successfully provide for this valuable ministry. Please prayerfully consider supporting Camp J.O.Y. as they seek to bring Jesus to the community of Buffalo New York.
St. Luke will be collecting Hula Hoops, Double Dutch jump ropes, Kid’s jump ropes, playground bouncy balls, bubbles, paddle balls, puzzles for 5-year-old, colored sidewalk chalk, Liquid hand soaps, Board games (monopoly, Hedbanz, Candyland, etc.)
If you are moved to help fulfill the great need for volunteers, please contact Our Savior Buffalo directly at 716-885-1108.
