Radio Campaign Begins for Summer Camp Appeal; Please Help Today!

Due to the difficult economy, and the fact that past camp donors are disappearing as a result, 710AM ESPN Radio this week has begun airing three different Council camp appeal ads to help bring in needed funds to help send disadvantaged children to summer camp.

Each ad (one :30 second and two :60 second spots) includes sound-bytes from children on what they love about the Council's Circle V Ranch and a short narrative from Camp Director Ray Lopez, which includes an appeal for $150 (tax-deductible) to help offset the $300 weekly camp fee per child. There are eight one-week sessions, and the Society hopes to host 1,200 children from throughout Southern California.

Won't you please help the Council send underserved children to camp this summer? Please earmark your check '2009 ESPN Camp Appeal' and send it to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Council of L.A., 210 N. Avenue 21, Los Angeles, CA 90031. Information: 1-800-97-HELP-1 or e-mail
