Children’s Bereavement Network receives grant from RCCF

Camp Live, Laugh, Love (sponsored by the Children’s Bereavement Network) provides an annual weekend camp for children age 7-14 who have lost a loved one. Each child has their own “teen buddy,” who is an instant friend, and helps them through activities.

A $1,050.00 grant was provided to the Children’s Bereavement Network by the Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund ($525.00) and the Roscommon County General Fund ($525.00) of RCCF. This grant covered costs for one Teen Buddy, and eight adult volunteers from Roscommon County.

“Roscommon County Community Foundation has always been very supportive of our endeavor to provide camp for grieving children in the county,” Roberta Friday, President of CBN, says. “We are always grateful for the support we receive from RCCF and hope to get more Teen Buddies for our 2017 camp!”

If you have a child who would benefit from Camp Live, Laugh, Love, please contact Roberta Friday at (800) 861-8418. You may also visit their website at www.camplivelaughlove.org, or email camplivelaughlove@nullyahoo.com
