Carolinas foundation donates 60000 to Victory Junction
GREENSBORO, N.C. (8/5/08)--The Carolinas Credit Union Foundation (CCUF) recently donated $60,000 to the Victory Junction Gang Camp in Randleman, N.C., a camp for children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses. Rising fuel prices have made it more difficult for families traveling long distances to drop their children off at the camp. During a recent field trip to the camp, State Credit Union Foundation Network leaders suggested that the CCUF donate gas cards or contribute to help campers’ families pay for the trip. The foundation provided $50 gas cards to all 1,200 campers’ families attending camp this summer. CCUF also provided an additional $1,500 to help with group travel to and from airports and drop off locations. “[CCUF Executive Director] John Slack and his team at the CCUF continue to be proactive in their support of Victory Junction,” said camp president Dean Kessel. “Their gracious donation of over $60,000 in purchase cards will provide much needed assistance with the increased transportation costs facing families of our campers this summer.” The foundation has partnered with the camp since 2002. Victory Junction was created by NASCAR driver Kyle Petty and his wife Pattie in memory of their son Adam, who also was a NASCAR driver. Adam was killed in an accident in 2000.
