Bennett putting on his cast at Camp Helping Hands

Here’s a photo of Bennett putting on his cast at Camp Helping Hands 2 years ago. He was four years old. Pretty cute, huh?


Going strong, but we still need some help!

Camp Bennett is taking shape. However, we still need some help:

• FISCAL SPONSORSHIP from a non-profit 501 (c)(3) so that we can accept donations for scholarships.

* VOLUNTEERS! Ideally, we’d like volunteers who have OT experience and are willing to commit to the entire 3 week camp.

However, I’m happy to talk to anyone interested in volunteering.

• WISH LIST ITEMS: I’m starting to assemble a list of things we need for the camp.

This is just a start. If you’d like to donate any of these items, please contact me.

  • A ‘leftie’ camera with controls on the left side
  • Gardening supplies (dirt, plants, watering cans, worms, rakes, shovels, etc)
  • Rolls of white paper
  • Non-toxic paints
  • Paint brushes
  • Puff balls, stickers, glitter & other art supplies
  • Lacing games
  • Big LEGOS
  • Knob Puzzles
  • Musical instruments
