At the end of 2017 Camp Yamhill made an appeal to our friends to help us replace our camp mattresses. As many of you know, the mattresses that we have been using for our campers were older than most of the people who slept on them!
The response to our appeal has been very exciting. Our goal was $15,000. As of early January 2018, we have received a total of $16,609. As promised we have used those funds to purchase new camp mattresses. As you read this we should be receiving 190 new mattresses plus an additional 20 bedbug proof covers. Including the mattresses purchased in October of 2017 and those purchased in 2016 we now have new mattresses for every camp bunk plus an additional 20 spare mattresses. All of the new mattresses have bed bug proof covers.
Also because of your generosity we were able to replace the heater in the staff cabin which had not been operating properly for some time and finally quit.
The needs at Camp are still great including new flooring in all the cabins, new roofs on most of cabins and restrooms and several more heaters. Over time all of these issues need to be addressed but the generosity of our friends in this effort have been very encouraging to Camp and will be a blessing to those we serve for years to come.
