Grant Award Presented to Summer Camp for Bereaved Children
The Northern New Jersey Community Foundation’s The DeAnna Stark Pasciuto Memorial Fund announces its first grant award. Atlantic Home Care and Hospice’s Camp Clover, a nonprofit based in Morristown, New Jersey, received a $2,000 grant award.
The Fund remembers DeAnna Stark Pasciuto and contributes to qualified charitable organizations for cancer research, families touched by cancer, and scholarships for female student-athletes looking to pursue medical careers with a grant award. “I chose this organization because it serves children, like my own, whom have lost a parent. It offers them the opportunity to meet and make connections to children in similar circumstances and also brings grieving families together.
“The camp is completely free for campers and staffed through volunteers. I felt that the camp represents everything the Fund stands for and directly connects with both our mission and my late wife’s giving and caring nature,” said Michael Pasciuto, husband of the late DeAnna Stark Pasciuto and the NNJCF’s Fund advisor.
Camp Clover is a four-day bereavement camp for children located at Camp Riverbend in Warren, New Jersey. Donations support the special camp and are offered to youngsters in the first through eighth grades. Furthermore, a supportive place is provided for children who have experienced the loss of a loved one in their lives.
