Lippert Supports Care Camps Charity

Lippert is dedicating its combined financial and volunteer support to Care Camps, a charity that helps kids with cancer experience the healing power of the outdoors.

“In honor of Lippert’s 65th anniversary, we are . . . giving back to a charity that serves kids in every community where Lippert employees and customers live,” Michilah Grimes, Lippert’s director of corporate & community impact, said in a statement. “From May 24-30, a portion of all sales from our online store will be donated to Care Camps — an organization that provides opportunities for children with cancer to attend specialized oncology camps.”

Lippert already helped many Care Camps children this year with an employee Acts of Service event in April, during which 1,000 kits full of fun items were packed and sent to kids all over the region for “Camp-In-A-Box” experiences from Care Camps.

Because the pandemic forced many immunocompromised children to be isolated for the past year, the camping experience was brought to homes through interactive virtual camp experiences and the Camp-In-A-Box activities. Program kids connected through backyard campouts, virtual campfire singalongs, Zoom hikes, scavenger hunts, making s’mores and more, while still providing the emotional support of camp counselors through “Zoom Cabin Chats.”

“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,” said CEO Jason 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.”

Care Camps also announced that Lippert’s Michilah Grimes will join to the Care Camps Advisory Council. “Michilah has already been an incredible champion for our kids, and we are excited to have her on the Care Camps team,” said Jennifer Mercer, Care Camps director of development.

An ongoing donation from Kampgrounds of America’s (KOA) Rewards Program covers all of Care Camps administrative costs, allowing 100 percent of all donations to go directly to helping kids in the program.
