Help Fund Our 5th Grade Expedition

I really want to go to camp, but my school can't go if we don't get all the money to go. Camp is very important to me because camp will teach me somethings that I don't know about. I want to go because it would be very fun for me and I will get a few days away from my family. I think camp will teach me about insects, trees and what lives in tidepools. I really want to go to camp.

We need a helping hand to make it possible for our 5th graders to visit Camp Loma Mar in Northern California for a week in May. We are still $8,580 short of our goal and would be grateful for your assistance. The deadline for raising our funds is April 15th. If we have not reached our goal by then, these kids will not be able to go to camp. So every dollar helps!

Here are some of the things your contribution will allow us to provide:

$50: Field journals for all the children.

$68.60 One day of camp for one student.

$343: One week of camp for one student.

$1200: Transportation for the students.

El Monte Elementary School is a tax-exempt public agency (ID number 68-0091157). Therefore, your contributions is 100% tax deductible.
