Rothco's Visit To The Gerald J. Ryan Outreach Center

As part of our Summer Camp Charity, Rothco recently went to visit one of the camps we helped sponsor this year. The Gerald J. Ryan Outreach Center has a special camp program, which helps underprivileged children go to summer camp. The camp program has been active for over 30 years and helps hundreds of children every year by providing an affordable summer program for them to go to, full of interesting activities designed to keep them off the streets during the summer. Rothco is honored to be a part of such a wonderful charity and had the special privilege of visiting the camp this past July and we wanted to share some of the pictures from our visit. 

If you would like to read more about our summer camp charity program you can read more about it with our past blog post below. 

Rothco's Summer Camp Program Keeps On Growing

Continuing with our tradition of giving back to the community, for the 3rd year in a row, Rothco will be sponsoring summer camp programs for deserving children who otherwise would not be able to have this special summer experience. At Rothco, we believe in giving back to the community that has helped make Rothco who we are today, which is why we are so proud and excited to continue the summer camp program. 

This year, Rothco has expanded our camp program to include applicants who were recommended to us by guidance offices in our local school districts, and a local children and family services organization. This year we were able to fund 100% of the applications we received for camp assistance! We doubled our camp budget so that we could double the fun!

In addition, Rothco is very pleased and proud to be a sponsor for the Gerald J. Ryan Outreach Center in Wyandanch, which provides an affordable camp program for neighborhood children.

Our camp program is one of the most important things we do here at Rothco. We believe it helps create a healthy environment for local children, to help them grow into good citizens. Everyone here at Rothco is proud to say we work for a company that is so willing to give to others.
