Tilly's Kids Summer Program & Backpack Party a HUGE Success

2015 Backpack Party

2015 Backpack Party

Summer came and went but not until wonderful memories were created by our teen volunteers for the participants in our Tilly’s Kids Summer 2015 program, the link takes you to our photos. Our Wednesday Fun in the Sun program met with perfect weather each week. 36 Tilly’s Kids participants enjoyed the warm companionship of their “teen buddies” every Wednesday in July while they swam in the lake, played on the playground and went on a Nature Scavenger Hunt at Swartswood State Park.

At our Byram Day Camp program the kids stayed academically connected by learning about animals, the weather, and doing hands-on science experiments all while having fun with our amazing PIA teen volunteers. Special thanks to Sue Loyas for putting her heart and soul into teaching all the lessons.
Thanks to the generosity of so many people, we once again were able to send all of our Tilly’s Kids back to school with backpacks filled with school supplies. The kids were so excited to receive their beautiful new backpacks and were grateful for the much needed school supplies. Thanks to the many individuals who donated to this great program, especially Selective Insurance employees who donated 22 back packs and the Lake Mohawk Pool Swim team who donated 10.
