Camp Comfort Zone and New York Life

Three years ago, I was able to volunteer for an amazing camp called "Comfort Zone Camp." It is a camp located in Richmond, Virginia that hosts free camps for children who have lost a parent, caregiver, or sibling. During the camp session, the children receive free grief counseling, group therapy, as well as fun camp activities. It was an amazing experience and I really would like to be involved again at some point. The other day, Darrell and I found out that the company he works for, New York Life, has given this camp a large sum of money! I think everyone should know about this camp, in case they need it sometime, or so that they can pass it along to families when a tragedy happens. The camp has now expanded to three states: Virginia, New Jersey (in response to the 9/11 tragedy), and now California. Here's a link to the camp:
