The Arizona Daily Star’s Sportsmen’s Fund Send a Kid to Camp program raises money so children from low-income households and military families can attend overnight YMCA, Boy Scout and Girl Scout camps and Camp Courage burn camp for little or no fees.

We kicked off our fund drive Feb. 20 with an envelope in the paper. Since then, we’ve received 679 donations totaling $62,050 toward our goal of $190,000 to send 770 kids to weeklong overnight camps this summer. We’re a third of the way to our goal with about a month before camp season begins.

We are grateful for your donations and continue our thank-yous today. Your contribution is tax-deductible, qualifying for the state’s working-poor charitable tax credit of up to $400.
