What are your hopes for summer this year?
The pandemic has changed so much of our daily lives, especially for our children. They lost childhood experiences that make growing up memorable and fun. This year more than ever low-income families in lower Fairfield County need our assistance. As many families are struggling to get back to work, providing for their children this summer is a source of worry and stress. Person-to-Person’s summer campership program helps meet this critical need.

For children in P2P’s camp program, summer is filled with engaging activities and academic enrichment—and the opportunity to create new experiences, friendships and memories.

Please join us to help make the future bloom for hundreds of children, by providing them with a fun, safe, and academically enriching summer!

When you donate a minimum of $25 by Friday, April 30th you will receive a special thank you gift from OPUS for Person-to-Person.

On Saturday, May 1st you will receive a hand delivered packet of native wildflower seeds adorned with a big, red bow.* This Blooms for Campers Day is an eco-friendly update of our Balloons for Campers Day.

*Note: Blooms for Campers seed/bow deliveries on May 1 are only available for donors in Darien, Rowayton and New Canaan; for donors in Greenwich and Stamford there will be a designated pick-up location. All other donors will receive virtual wildflowers via email.

Special Thanks to Our Corporate Sponsors
Anika Charron & Julie Bauer at William Pitt Sotheby’s Realty, The Corbin District, and Ring’s End.
