Helping to paint the inside of the new Open Hearts/Open Doors downtime shed were (from left), Aaron Capozzoli, Davi Markus, and Hayden Markus. On Sunday, June 10, our Women’s Philanthropy Giving Circle, and their families, went out to the JCC Camps at Medford to rehab an old staff field office for the Open Hearts/Open Doors (OH/OD) program. This new space will provide campers with special needs a place to go when they need some quiet time during their camp experience.

This project was funded by the Giving Circle. When the grant was received, the women were so inspired that they wanted to help rehab the office, as well. They brought their families out to clean, paint, and make the space warm and welcoming for future campers.
