For decades, the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) across the state of Virginia have supported Easterseals UCP and Camp EastersealsUCP in New Castle, VA. Members show their support by dedicating their time and talent to host the welcoming of the campers.
Since 1957, Easterseals UCP has been the GFWC state project. This project resulted in years of donations, time and support. As a result, the children and adults with disabilities who attend Camp Easterseals UCP, and their families have benefited in a tremendous way. Their fundraising dollars have helped make big and small improvements to Camp Easterseals UCP and therefore have made the camping experience more enjoyable.
We thank the ladies who took part in the “kiss the moose” game and look forward to their continued support.
