"Buddies" Needed for Weekend Camp for Grieving Children & Teens

CAMP PATHWAYS 2019
Presented by Hospice of Dayton's Pathways of Hope

Friday–Sunday
June 21–23
Camp Joy
Outdoor Education Center, Clarksville, Ohio

Camp Pathways is offering a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children and teens, ages 7–17, who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or significant loved one. The camp's weekend-long experience is designed to encourage children and teens to express their feelings of grief in a safe and fun environment. You will be matched with a camper of the same gender and serve as a “buddy” supporting them through their grief throughout the weekend.

Wright State students aged 18 years and older, with majors in counseling, medicine, nursing, psychology, and social work are encouraged to volunteer. But students with other majors, as well as faculty and staff, who have the emotional maturity to be a "buddy" and sit with a child’s or teen’s grief are welcome.

Training is provided.

Collection Drive for Personal Care & Student Parent/Caregiver Pantry

The Wright State University Personal Care & Student Parent/Caregiver Pantry differs from the Friendship Food Pantry in that it focuses on non-food needs (particularly hygiene and personal care items) of our students caring for children.  Collection will be at the Bolinga Black Cultural Resources Center in 140 Millett Hall.

Box Tops for Education Collection

Many of us throw away the Box Tops for Education labels that are on products we use daily. Saville Elementary is a Riverside school that WSU students currently work with. Saville has an Excellent education rating, but also has a high population of needy students. Collecting and donating the Box Tops for Education allows the school to shop for needed supplies and is an easy way we can help. If you are willing to donate your Box Tops for Education to Saville Elementary, please send them to Joanie Hendricks at 228 University Hall.
