Thanks to all who have donated to support Camp Nejeda's Lovin' Oven campaign. Each summer the Nejeda Kitchen Staff must prepare more than 34,000 meals for campers, counselors, nurses and staff. Our kitchen is designed to run optimally with two ovens but this summer our second oven broke and could not be repaired. The Nejeda Kitchen Staff prepared the same 34,000 meals with just ONE oven - and it wasn't easy. Our Lovin' Oven Campaign was launched on Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving, to help camp raise the $7,000 needed to purchase a replacement oven. The new oven, fondly called our 'Lovin' Oven' is vital to our ability to provide healthy meals and help model good nutrition that youth with diabetes need to stay healthy.
More than 50 donors have supported the campaign and raised just over $4,000 or 58% of our goal! Many donors chose to make a donation in honor or memory of someone special.We thought you'd enjoy reading the meaningful notes included with their donations below.
Will you show our oven some Lovin' and help us reach our goal of $7,000? No amount is too small (or large!). Leave a comment with your donation and we'll add it to this display board in memory of your favorite camper, counselor, nurse or memory at Camp Nejeda. Thank you!
LOVE IS ALL WE NEED.
