The United Way of Pioneer Valley’s new Happy Camper Fund will make it possible for 100 day campers from six local youth-serving agencies to go on up to three Friday Fun Trips as part of their day-camping experience this summer.
1,800 children will travel to a fun venue, ride in a luxury air-conditioned motor coach and have a delicious box lunch with plenty of drinks, all provided as part of our package.
This is made possible through a partnership of:
- United Way of Pioneer Valley
- Peter Pan Bus Lines
- Springfield Boys & Girls Club
- Family Center Boys & Girls Club
- The Springfield YMCA
- Square One
- MLK Jr. Family Services
- South End Community Center
Our goal is to expand the program next year and not only provide Friday Fun Field Trips, but also Camperships so that every child can go to day camp regardless of their financial situation.
This is United Way of Pioneer Valley’s 100th anniversary. Since January 10th, 1921, our organization has raised and invested over $193 million in the Pioneer Valley through both good times and bad. Please help us support this very important program in this our first fundraising drive of our second century of service. Your 100% tax-deductible contribution can make a world of difference for a local child, so please make your donation today.
