Thursday evening, August 4th turned out to be perfect! While very hot during the day, the weather cooled down to make this evening and event super special! Glen Island Park has a water setting, and the breeze cooled down the evening just enough. Well, perhaps not enough for the runners, but I was walking ! All of the net proceeds went towards a leading social service agency, HOPE Community Services, which runs a food pantry, a soup kitchen, and several housing programs for the under-privileged in New Rochelle, and surrounding communities.
Closed for the past couple of years after opening in 2017, we have been inundated with requests by parents and children to reopen the camp.
Thanks to some generous donors we are happy to announce that the camp will be running over the first 2 weeks in August at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church on North Avenue in New Rochelle.
Being 100% free, Camp HOPE provides an opportunity for children in our community, who would otherwise not be able to participate in the joys of a summer camp experience, due to financial constraints.
Did you know that the HOPE Community Services fed over One Million people during COVID?
Glen Island was THE most perfect setting, and a great place to visit (as is New Rochelle!). Come and visit – you wont want to leave!
New Rochelle is Great!
