The Epilepsy Services Foundation is an organization I am willing to contribute to. The have a very small staff and a large number of volunteers who are dedicated to the children and families needing help. The staff and volunteers go out to the community to provide education and awareness programs about epilepsy. They mentor volunteers and encourage them to meet with the newly diagnosed children with epilepsy and their families to give them support and to provide information about epilepsy. They also do fundraising for a number of programs, one of which is the camp program that sends kids with epilepsy to a camp that cares for the needs of kids with a chronic condition. The camp is Camp Boggy Creek.
