MDA Summer Camp Counselors NEEDED
June 4th thru June 11th
For the last several years the MDA Summer Camp held in Linwood, Kansas has not had enough volunteers for counselors, and particularly males. As the official charity of the IAFF and with over 1500 members in our local, we should take it upon ourselves to ensure the kids have the opportunity to enjoy camp with enough counselors.
Volunteering is an incredible opportunity to give a kid his/her best week of the year. Member for Member is available for shift coverage while volunteering at camp. For more information regarding what a Camp Counselor does click here.
If you have any questions or would like more information please contact L42 Business Agent Justin Abraham at 816.783.5450 or via Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
