RV and marine industry supplier Patrick Industries has joined the cause to help more children with cancer experience the healing power of the outdoors through a new cause marketing partnership with Care Camps.
“Our Patrick family is extremely excited and very humbled to partner with Care Camps in their mission to provide children battling cancer with unique outdoor camping experiences that will create special life-long memories," said Patrick Executive Vice President of Sales Jeff Rodino. "Care Camps’ vision and drive is an excellent match with Patrick’s core values and we are honored to have formed a partnership between this organization and all of our Patrick teams throughout the country to support such a great cause.”
Care Camps provides opportunities for kids with cancer to experience the outdoors through 135 special oncology camps that serve every community throughout the US and Canada. At Care Camp, kids learn to appreciate nature, along with growing life-long friendships with other kids who understand exactly what they are going through. Through Care Camps, many kids have gotten to experience the outdoors for the first time and have grown up to be the next generation of camping enthusiasts!
As the number of children impacted by cancer grows each year, along with the cost of medical treatment, so does the need for additional funding to help the kids.
Care Camps Director of Development Jennifer Mercer said, “The Patrick team and their leadership have shown an incredible heart for giving back to make a difference in the lives of these kids. Their initial donation along with planned future employee engagement and cause marketing initiatives will bring the outdoors experience to thousands of kids who otherwise would not have had this chance."
