Howell Motors Ford is proud to announce their continued support of Camp Happiness of Niagara County. The Lockport Ford dealer has recently donated to the program for the third year in a row. This year, Howell Motors Ford donated $10,000 to Camp Happiness.
Howell Motors Ford began donating to the program as part of Go Forward with Ford Fusion Night, an event at which the new design of the Fusion was rolled out. For every person that came to the dealership that night, Howell Motors Ford made a matching gift donation and chose Camp Happiness as the beneficiary. Mike Landers, owner of Howell Motors Ford, is a proud parent of a camper at Camp Happiness and Opportunities Unlimited.
Camp Happiness is a one-week day camp for people aged 12 to 90 years who have intellectual or developmental disabilities. Since 2008, The Elks National Foundation has, in part, funded the camp. In-kind services are provided by the Lockport Family YMCA, Opportunities Unlimited of Niagara, and Lockport Elks Volunteers.
The camp, at Camp Kenan on Lake Ontario, gives participants the opportunity to experience a variety of fun activities, including hiking, archery, fishing, swimming rock climbing, campfire time and arts and crafts.
“We are proud to keep this great project alive,” said Landers. “We are fortunate for the Elks giving grants to help support this phenomenal program. Their work to fundraise did so much to support this program financially. As a parent, brother Elk, and member of the community, it is my pleasure to support and help make this program thrive. Hopefully this donation will help extend this project into the future and keep cost down for campers."
