Description:

Jack’s Helping Hand has proudly sponsored, Camp Reach for the Stars, a weekend-long family camp for the last six years. Under the leadership of Camp Directors Mary Mott Okimoto and Dr. Jim & Jessica Malone, this camp weekend has been provided at no cost to families of the Central Coast whose children are currently in cancer treatment or in remission.

At Camp Reach for the Stars, children can meet other children who have experienced the cancer fight, lost their hair from chemotherapy or suffered a relapse after months (or even years) following treatment. It’s also a place where parents can share stories and resources with other parents and form supportive bonds with one another. At Camp Reach for the Stars, the entire family can take a much-needed deep breath.

At LoveSLO, Jack's Helping Hand will be hosting a family-friendly event that allows volunteers to paint encouraging posters for the children and families at camp. These posters will be hung in family cabins and other buildings around camp. It is amazing how powerful and encouraging these posters are for the families we serve!

When you sign up for the project above you get a free Love SLO t-shirt. The shirt is available to be picked up at any time from J. Carroll (113 Cross St, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 / 595-1000). Go into the main lobby, tell them you signed up for Love SLO, and they'll give you your shirt. Easy as that! Otherwise we'll have your shirt at the Mission Plaza the morning of the event.

Love SLO (March 16th) begins at 8:00am in the Mission Plaza. Festivities (free food, fun, etc.) begin at 8:00am and the Rally will begin around 8:30am. You will meet here before going to your project location. When you arrive, you'll want to find your project sign and meet your project leader. After the Rally, you will meet at your project sign and hear important instructions from your project leader before going to your project location.

Thank You, This Project is Full
