THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING CAMERON!
We have some very exciting news to share!
Two of our young women who are involved in Cameron's After-School program and R&R for Girls Group have been accepted into Our Lady of Mercy School. Kaila and Jalisa will be attending Mercy this Fall. We need help to fill in the gaps for the girls. Please visit Kaila & Jalisa's page for more information!
As of July 17th, we've raised $5,245 for the girls! Thank you! Please keep the support coming.

We are looking for groups to host Sunday Celebrations! The following dates are available:
August 9th, August 16th, August 23rd, November 29th and December 20th
Groups who volunteer to host a Sunday Celebration meal design the menu, purchase and prepare the food (either at Cameron or using their own facilities) and serve the meal at Cameron. Meals are served from 4:30-5:30pm. Sunday celebration meals also include a brief "worship/reflection" time (i.e. a prayer, an inspiring thought, song, scripture reading etc.. ), created by the group who is hosting the meal.
Sunday Celebrations offer a means for church and community groups to assist in combating hunger in the Rochester area, as well as continue in their own missions through our agency. To sign up please contact Jennie Papkin – Volunteer Coordinator at (585) 254-2697.
Thank you for all of your support!
