NSDC Brings Holiday Cheer to Many Deserving Children
This holiday season, the TLC Family of Camps have come together to help out families in need with the Boys and Girls Club of Glen Cove by collecting toys and other small gifts for their Club Bucks program.
During the holiday season, the Club Bucks program is offered to the club’s children as an incentive program. Here, they earn “Club Bucks” for completing various tasks and doing good deeds, such as helping a staff person, getting an A on a test, doing all their homework, helping another friend, participate in an educational activity, etc. At the end of the program, each child has the opportunity to “shop” in the Holiday Store to purchase gifts and toys for their siblings or other family members. Some of the items collected were: stuffed animals, bracelets, gloves, socks, t-shirts and various children’s toys. The goal of the program is to convey the importance of “giving” during this holiday season – giving of their time, effort and service – and giving of gifts to loved ones.
Our day school, North Shore Day School, also led a food drive to help support LI Cares, a hunger action organization which distributed the canned goods we collected to local shelters and families in need.
North Shore Day Camp is proud to support the Boys and Girls Club & LI Cares during this season of giving and everyone here at camp wishes you a wonderful holiday and a very happy New Year!
