Royal Family Kids sends Foster children to summer camp and more

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

By Allen Payton

Each year, Royal Family Kids, a nonprofit, hosts week long summer camps for children who are currently in the Foster Care System, who have been abandoned, neglected or abused.

RFK-Brentwood is only the second camp in the Bay Area having been hosted and trained by the RFK-Concord camp. This will be RFK-Brentwood’s first year hosting their own camp.

Last year, 39 foster children from Antioch, Brentwood and Oakley went to camp, with a staff of 91 volunteers. This year the goal is to send 40 foster children to camp. Volunteers are given background checks, screened, fingerprinted and interviewed to meet the unique needs and safety of these children.

RFK-Brentwood depends solely on donations of individuals, businesses and organizations, as foster children attend camp for free. The funds provide for the children at camp, plus their supplies and materials.

They are currently raising $60,000.00 to meet all of the needs of the children and staff for the week at camp. Their major fundraiser, a Royal Family Tea will be held on May 10, 2014 at Golden Hills Community Church from 2:00 – 4:00 P.M. Tickets are on sale now at a cost of $15.00 each. Families with children ages 8 and older invited to attend.  For tickets call Connie Rominger at 925-207-9180.

To donate an auction item or raffle prize to the fundraiser or in some other way, call Fundraising Coordinator Sue Bowers at 925-207-9182.

All donations, financial or in-kind, are tax deductible.
