Camp organizers are reaching out again, seeking skilled labor volunteers to help with building, shoring up and any repair the camp may need before it reopens in June for the first time in two years.
The camp was founded in 1999 and aims to bring a week of respite to severely ill children and their families, at no cost. Families in the community have adopted each of the 500-square-foot cabins, donating money and time to paint.
"It gives them the opportunity to bond as a family, to be with others and get support and often long-lasting friendships are built," Executive Director Tracey Sperry told WBZ's Brooke McCarthy.
Camp staff does a lot of the day-to-day maintenance, but the camp is in dire need of professional carpenters, plumbers, electricians and even an auto mechanic ahead of the summer season.
Dream Day staffers are hoping those professionals, particularly busy during the pandemic, may still be able to help. To volunteer, call 774-216-0147 or email email@example.com.
