Helping A Needy Family For Christmas

The Skipstone Family is working to help a family in need this Christmas. We were given the family's information from one of the local public schools as a family who is truly in need of assistance. I have spoken to the mom myself and she is so appreciative of anything we can do to help. She is a single mom with four children.

Skipstone's Camp Joy Scholarship Fund

Give the gift of CAMP top a deserving child by giving a gift of $25 to Skipstone's Camp Joy Scholarship Fund. We are looking for 1000 people to donate $25 each so we can raise the $25,000 needed to host 100+ underprivileged children for Camp Joy next summer at Skipstone. We work with DFACS as well as local churches to invite kids that might not ever have the opportunity to experience a life-changing week of camp. We need to send out our invitiations to campers in mid-January and this has been our toughest year ever to raise the needed money. PLEASE help us by clicking on the DONATE button to donate securely through PayPal or mail your $25 gift to Skipstone, 600 Baptist Camp Road, Griffin, GA 30223
