First Bank Financial Centre (FBFC) is a proud supporter of Wisconsin’s Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) summer camp for kids. Contributing more than $1,300 for supplies like volunteer and camper back packs, a photo booth for the end of camp dance, and a caricature artist for their carnival night, FBFC provides some much-needed support for the attendees.
In addition to these items, FBFC also featured MDA Camp Director Mallory Williams and former camper Jacob, on their radio show and podcast, That’s So Money. The April episode featured Mallory and Jacob talking about summer camp and why it’s so important for the kids. You can hear the episode by visiting www.iheart.com or the iHeart Media app, and searching That’s So Money.
MDA summer camp takes place in Camp Lake, Wis. each June, and is open to kids ages 8 – 17 with neuromuscular disease. Proclaimed by some as “the best week of the year,” campers enjoy swimming, fishing, arts and crafts, derby car races, boat rides, a carnival, Harley side-car rides, a dance, and so much more! Counselors and activity directors are all volunteers, so funds can go directly to camp.
“First Bank Financial Centre is so generous in supporting MDA summer camp. Without donations like theirs we wouldn’t be able to have all the activities we do. We are very grateful for their contributions,” said Williams.
“Having been a volunteer at MDA Summer Camp going on 11 years now, it feels amazing to have an employer that supports causes close to my heart,” said Becky Miller, Marketing Manager at FBFC. “For one week, all these kids are the same as everyone else and participating in activities just like everyone else. I truly appreciate FBFC’s support.”
