The Summer is in full effect, here at Edmarc! Despite the Tropical Storm we have had beautiful weather and our calendar has been full of GREAT events throughout the month of July!
This month we celebrated our AMAZING volunteers! If you ask anyone, everyone would say that the Edmarc volunteers are our superheroes! Although it was raining, we had a great turnout and were able to honor some pretty important individuals. Edmarc relies heavily on our volunteers; without them we would not be able to provide the quality care our families deserve. Whether it is delivering food to our families, organize our toy room, or even babysitting siblings so bereaved moms’ and dads’ can go to our support group; we know we can always count on them. So, to everyone who has ever volunteered for Edmarc; thank you, it means the world to us and our families!
Bayville Harley Davidson held their Annual Poker Run on July 12th and Edmarc was the beneficiary. It was a beautiful day for a ride and the turnout was great! Thank you so much for thinking of Edmarc and allowing us to be a part of your day!
After the Poker Run, the YMCA Camp Silverbeach turned Edmarc into a Carnival for a day! The bus pulled up and 50 youth volunteers and camp counselors poured out with arms full of the days’ activities. There were games, prizes, nail painting, a craft corner, and a photo booth to capture the day! Families had a great time and when it was all said and done, all 35 pizzas were gone and there were 100 smiling faces! It was a HUGE success!!! Heartfelt thanks to all who helped make this an event our families will be talking about for months to come.
It is hard to believe school is almost back in session! Christopher Newport University is gearing up for its 2014-2015 school year and students will have the opportunity to work with Edmarc in a volunteer capacity. We are excited to continue our relationship with CNU!
Check out our Wish List on the Edmarc website so we can make sure ALL of our Edmarc kids go to school prepared with everything they need to start their year!
