This organization’s program aligned perfectly with NAILBA’s goals and we are happy to help support a camp where kids can be kids and not worry about the future or which procedures they have to undergo next week.
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2011
CPS Insurance Services (CPS) recently secured a $25K grant from the National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies(NAILBA) to support the Orange County Foundation for Oncology Children and Families (OCF-OCF). The grant will be used to help fund the organization’s weekend camps held every June and September for children battling cancer and their families.
The OCF-OCF was established in 1982 and has remained a non-profit, volunteer run organization providing free of charge, year-round recreational and social activities designed to foster supportive relationships for pediatric cancer patients and their families.
“This grant allows us to host our camp for families in the Orange County area,” said Neil Barbour, past Executive Director and current board member of OCF-OCF. “Our ultimate goal is to give families the opportunity to have an enjoyable experience outside of the hospital and to foster relationships with others in the same boat in order to gain strength and support.”
OCF-OCF’s weekend getaway is deemed the “World’s Greatest Camp” and is hosted in Big Bear, CA. It provides an opportunity for children and families facing the stress of cancer to unwind. Campers have the opportunity to participate in activities such as horseback riding, archery, crafts, swimming, lake activities, a campfire and a ropes challenge course.
The NAILBA Charitable Foundation supports recognized charities that serve the needs of children in the US. The funds that are donated are collected from the 350 member agencies, like CPS Insurance Services, through donations and silent live auctions. In its nearly 10 years in existence, the NAILBA Charitable Foundation has given away more than a million dollars.
“We are very pleased to be able to help the numerous pediatric cancer patients of Orange County that attend OCF-OCF’s camps,” said Peter Holden, CEO of CPS Insurance Services. “This organization’s program aligned perfectly with NAILBA’s goals and we are happy to help support a camp where kids can be kids and not worry about the future or which procedures they have to undergo next week.”
