Since 2007, West team members in Jersey Shore and Williamsport, Pa., have donated to Camp Victory, helping to beautify the grounds each year, build a wheel-chair accessible tree-house and provide funding for the summer camp experience of a lifetime for children with illnesses.  For West’s Jeff Adams, Supply Chain Manager/Lean Leader, Camp Victory has also been a place his family has experienced as both volunteers and campers.

As we continue the 10th Anniversary of the West without Borders fundraising campaign, let’s take a look back at what the partnership with Camp Victory.  The partnership has existed formally for West since 2007 when “Uncle Walt’s Treehouse” was built thanks to donations from West team members, and informally for many volunteers long before that, has meant to team members from the Jersey Shore and Williamsport plants.

Camp Victory, which is located in Millville, Pennsylvania, operates camps for children with special needs and children who live with chronic health disadvantages including spina bifida, autism and cancer.  In 2007, West donated the funding and manpower needed to build a wheel-chair accessible tree house and has maintained an affiliation with the camp ever since.  So when Camp Victory sent out a call for fundraising as part of its 2013 Corporate Sponsorship Program, West was pleased to become a Corporate Partner with a donation of $25,000.
