Camp Fire Sustaining Membership Drive

Members of the Camp Fire North Texas board of directors, advisory board and friends of Camp Fire will be calling on over 800 people asking them to partner with Camp Fire in providing exciting programs for over 2000 children and their families by contributing financially. 

The goal is set for $60,000.00.  The team members will be asking for a $100 Sustaining Membership gift but will be pleased to receive more or less.

Founded in 1910, Camp Fire was the first nonsectarian, interracial organization for girls (the "Camp Fire Girls") in the United States.  Camp Fire North Texas has been enriching the lives of youth in our community and outlying areas since 1915 -100 years this spring.  Based on a commitment to the entire family, membership was expanded to include boys in 1976.  Camp Fire is an all- inclusive youth development organization focused on providing the skills and tools necessary to lead meaningful, productive lives.  In Camp Fire youth are surrounded with positive adult role models which foster a sense of security and belonging and which strengthens belief in themselves, trust in others and hope for the future.  The importance of community service and giving back to others is a significant part of the Camp Fire message.

The kick-off will be held at the A. D. January Lodge at Harrell Park on Thursday, November 6, 2014 at 11:30 a. m. 

Anyone desiring to give to Camp Fire through this drive should drop by the Camp Fire office at 2414 Ninth Street or call 322-5209.
