Thank You! Day of Giving Raises $50,365

Since 2009, Ligonier Camp and Conference Center has participated in the annual Day of Giving, an event held by the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County. This provides non-profit organizations with an equal, pro-rated portion of the $80,000 matching funds for all donations made on the Day of Giving. Through this platform, donors are able to watch their giving increase without having to pay a cent more.

We are very excited and humbled to announce that this year marked the highest amount of donations for Ligonier Camp on the Day of Giving. We had 94 donors contributing on the day of the event, with gifts totaling $44,180. The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County will match the donations with $6,185, giving Ligonier Camp a total of $50,365! For the second year in a row, LCCC was the number one recipient of funds in Westmoreland County.

As we begin 2012’s End of Year Campaign, we would like to thank everyone who gave generously during the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County’s Day of Giving. We are so grateful for the generosity of everyone who supports LCCC and look forward to continuing to serve campers, clients, and the community.

Work Days 4/28 & 5/5: Come See Our New LAKE!

We are gearing up for summer camp at our main site as well as our NEW lake property just two miles from camp, where campers will swim, tube, and play laser tag.

Demolition, construction, and camp staff have been hard at work building a beach and getting both properties in shape.  If you'd like a preview of all we've been up to, now is a great time to check things out--and lend a hand!

We have two work days scheduled for the next two Saturdays at 9 AM.  Come at 8:30 for continental breakfast in the summer camp dining hall.  We'll break into groups to tackle a number of projects around main property as well as the lake.

Are you seeking a fun opportunity to serve with your family, church, or community group?  Does your high schooler need volunteer community service hours?  Call Patrick Myers at (724) 238-6428 x107 or send him an email if you're interested in volunteering.

Lunch is provided.  We hope to see you soon!
