Project to Visit Bald Head
Families Need Your Support
On November 9,
2011, counselors are arriving to meet on Bald Head Island and on
Thursday, Nov 10th, many families will arrive for the
meeting/workshop. In support of this remarkable program, BHI residents
and local businesses have really stepped up and more than satisfied the
housing needs for the families and attending counselors!
the housing has been squared away, there is still budgetary needs for
providing the group of 50+ guests with ferry tickets, parking, food, golf
carts as needed, and other smaller expenses. The estimated need is
around $6000. Every dollar counts and we are asking for everyone to give
what they can to this outstanding cause. This is a 503(c) 3 non profit,
which means that a donation of any pecuniary value may be tax deductable.
CARE Project is devoted to family emotional support. The goals for
the retreat are:
To create a sense of community among families with children who are
deaf or hard of hearing
To bring comfort and knowledge to the parents in attendance
To connect families to resources and other families for information
will spend time together with other families, parents will spend time
with staff on a variety of topics, children will have planned activities
allowing parents to be in the workshops....lots of opportunities to
enjoy, relax and learn! In the end, these families will leave this
experience feeling better about their children, their lives and looking
forward to a future filled with hope!
