Thanks to the staff of Camp Praise

My wife and I have recently discovered a wonderful asset to our community. We have a niece who has Downs Syndrome and is a wonderful young lady and a blessing to our family in many ways.

We discovered an organization called Camp Praise that is located straight across the street from the Princeton Post Office. Every Tuesday and Thursday they have bingo and all proceeds go to funding a church service the first Sunday of every month in which all mentally handicapped persons get taught about God as well as getting a gift bag which includes several nice gifts.

 They also fund summer camps and many other activities for these wonderful people. My wife participates with our niece and both immensely enjoy it. Not only is the bingo good clean fun, but the activities that the proceeds fund are wonderful.  To the wonderful and caring staff of Camp Praise, hats off to you.
