Kimani Davis of Human Resources has moved to AD113B. Phone numbers remain the same.

According to Bill Mate, all efforts are being made to have the new classrooms in the AD building ready for use by Aug. 26.

Help Camp College Help the Needy
Sharon Vlasac said the Camp College bake sale on July 14 raised $367 to help feed needy children. Campers joined forces with Share Our Strength, a national organization that supports children's after-school and summer feeding programs, as well as health and nutrition initiatives that prevent child hunger.

"My sincere thanks goes out to all the bakers and buyers who supported our Kids Helping Kids event," Vlasac said. "We had 43 bakers from the college and camp staff." Children in the "Kids in the Kitchen" class also donated baked goods, thanks to Doug Fee.

Another bake sale is set for Wednesday, Aug. 12, with proceeds to go directly to area charities: Mercer Street Friends, Home Front, Angels Wings, and Trenton Area Soup Kitchen. "In order to make the August bake sale equally successful, we need to generate the same level of enthusiasm," Vlasac said.

According to Vlasac "Kids Helping Kids is a Camp College community service program. It teaches our young campers the importance of giving back to the community. In addition to food and supply drives, our past campers have also volunteered with Isles, Inc., working in a community garden."

In addition to the bake sales, each week
Camp College will be conducting varous other drives:

July 19-23: "Eye Openers-Breakfast of Champions." Needed are juices, boxed drinks, beverage mixes, coffee, tea, cereal, breakfast bars, etc.

July 26-30: "Melting Pot." Needed are pasta, spaghetti sauce, noodles, rice, tacos, beans, etc.
