Review for Camp Good Days & Special Times, Inc., Mendon, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I came to know of Camp Good Days through a simple donation of a pair of Buffalo Sabres tickets. The heartfelt response I received from Camp made me want to learn more about them and donate more whenever I could. I've since been able to to do that, have gotten to know more people involved with Camp and attended their annual Black Tie Gala in June. It was at that event where my wife and I sat with others who were generally our age, and parents as well, but were there for a different reason...some of their children were battling cancer, and Camp had become an enormous part of their lives. We spent the night shedding many tears while listening to the incredible stories that have made Camp what it is today, and came away so inspired by all of our new acquaintances; their strength, their belief, their hope. It was truly an amazing night that left us wanting to do all we can in the future to make sure that Camp will always be there for those in need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the families who are affected by childhood cancer. Words simply cannot describe what Camp Good Days has meant to them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

say thank you and shake the hands of every single employee and volunteer that has made Camp Good Days what it has become over the past 30 years. You are all truly amazing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the smiles on the faces of the children they help. Smiles that may not have happened had it not been for Camp.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the kind that every non-profit could only dream of having.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

ensure that even more families would find a way to enjoy cherished times during even the worst of times.

Ways to make it better...

I could donate even more time and money to this cause.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

reaching their annual funding goals in these difficult economic times.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Camp Good Days is something that Western New York should be truly proud of.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
