Lippert has announced its combined financial and volunteer support of Care Camps, which helps kids with cancer experience the healing power of the outdoors.

Care Camps“In honor of Lippert’s 65th anniversary, we are kicking off our celebration by giving back to a charity that serves kids in every community where Lippert employees and customers live. (Until) May 30, a portion of all sales from our online store (https://store.lci1.com/) will be donated to Care Camps – an organization that provides opportunities for children with cancer to attend specialized oncology camps where they get to spend time outdoors and experience new adventures while being with other kids just like them,” said Lippert’s director of corporate and community impact, Michilah Grimes. “For us, serving the people and communities around us is the very foundation of our team’s culture – so we thought there’s no better way to celebrate our 65th anniversary than by doing what we love the most … giving back!”

Added Lippert’s CEO, Jason Lippert: “Lippert is passionate about helping children and families around the world, along with camping and the outdoors, so partnering with Care Camps is a natural fit for Lippert. Not only do they help children and families dealing with a terrible disease, but they focus on the importance of getting outdoors and the restorative nature of camping.

“So many children miss out on all of the wonderful outdoor activities that camping can provide when they are sick, and Care Camps gives children dealing with cancer a chance to experience the healing power of the outdoors, all at no cost to the families. The Lippert family is excited to be a part of this mission, and we hope more of our industry partners will join us to make sure every child has this opportunity.”

In addition to a newly announced major charitable gift, Lippert has already served many Care Camps children this year with an employee “Acts of Service” event in April that packed 1,000 kits full of fun items to send to kids all over the region for Care Camps’ “Camp-In-A-Box” experiences.

Care Camps also announced the addition of Lippert’s Grimes to its Care Camps Advisory Council.

“We are thrilled that the Lippert team is joining forces with Care Camps to make sure kids facing cancer have the opportunity to be in the outdoors and find healing with other kids who know exactly what they are going through,” said Jennifer Mercer, Care Camps director of development. “Michilah has already been an incredible champion for our kids, and we are excited to have her on the Care Camps team.”

Grimes added, “I am honored to join the Advisory Board of Care Camps. This special charity provides an opportunity that allows children going through cancer to be a kid – to play games, be in the outdoors, and laugh with one another. In the midst of such a difficult time, they get to throw their worries out the window and be a kid. The camps also give them a chance to create lasting friendships with those who understand what they are going through. They aren’t labeled by their disease but are celebrating life.”
