Chase Andrews and everyone at Variety have been wonderful supporters of Camp To Belong. We reunite foster siblings that live separately while in care for summer camp and other activities.
We could never serve and reunite these children without the funds that Variety of Georgia has provided to us for the past 4 years.
Yesterday at our staff meeting, I told the story about Variety and how a baby was left at the Sheridan Theater because the mom could not take care of her. The mom left the baby at the Theater knowing that show business folks have big hearts. She knew the child would be well taken care of. I have had the privilege to get to know Stewart Harnell and several Variety Club members. They all have BIG hearts.
Variety of Georgia has been helping Lekotek and our efforts on behalf of children with disabilities for many years.
I am Bill Mickler, director of Wilderness Works a year round enrichment and experiential education program serving homeless and very needy children in Atlanta, Georgia. Our children are recipients of the kindness and care that Variety of Georgia Tent 21 is famous for giving.
Variety of Georgia is clearly a group of doers and not talkers. Although they provide critical funding this group is more about relationships. They know their beneficiaries and continually discover ways to enhance and empower the work being done by the partners they support. Numerous board members have been to our City Camp facility near downtown Atlanta.
Because of this group's big hearts and generosity our children have been to free movies, gone to years of summer camp, been well-prepared for starting school with book bags loaded with school supplies each fall, enjoyed Christmas gifting and more.
Our children have joined in service projects with the Variety of Georgia team and are always very lovingly received. This is just a bunch of super nice people and we are fortunate to know them!
Meanwhile, we are excited about their focus on the future as they are particularly interested in experiential education and nature and helping disadvantaged children!
Variety of Georgia is a group of caring and generous professionals that helps children's charities in Georgia. Variety of Georgia sees a need and looks for a solution! Their Mobility Program is amazing - providing adapted bikes for children with special needs who would otherwise never experience the freedom of riding a bike! We so appreciate the support Variety of Georgia has given to children all over Georgia!!
