2018 Year-end Fund Raising Campaign
As 2018 was coming to a close Camp Yamhill made an appeal to our friends and supporters for help in replacing the roofs of 5 cabins and 2 restrooms. These roofs were original to the buildings and were over 30 years old. Many of them were leaking causing other potentially expensive repairs.
We had hoped that the funds raised this year would begin the roofing project, with a goal of being able to finish the task as additional funds became available in the future through other fund-raising efforts. Due to your abundant generosity we were able to nearly reach our goal of $30,000. Camp was also blessed to receive some additional grants. Due to your giving and these grants, we have been able to completely fund our roofing project.
In addition to the new roofs, we are going to be able to begin some of the other long overdue projects. If you have been in the cabins recently you know that the flooring is ripped and worn out. Because of these grants we are going to be able to begin the process of replacing the old flooring as well as attend to other areas of camp that are badly in need of attention.
Camp Yamhill has been able to serve the Christians of the Northwest and beyond since 1954. Camp has been a blessing to the local church family and has been tremendously blessed by faithful people who have continued to share in this work by volunteering their time and providing much needed resources. As always, the love and generosity of our supporters has given us the ability to continue to provide a place where Christians can come and share in the glory of God’s creation.
