Save Our Structures (S.O.S.) Campaign
The All Saints Camp Committee was excited to have kicked-off their “Save Our Structures” S.O.S. Campaign at the 63rd Annual UOL Convention. S.O.S. is a program established by our All Saints Camp committee to ensure the continued maintenance and improvement of all the buildings that comprise our camp located in Emlenton, Pennsylvania.
The camp was first purchased 32 years ago, under the leadership of many, including the Ukrainian Orthodox League. It was in that spirit that this fundraising campaign was first presented to the UOL Convention body.
The S.O.S. program was designed to obtain both financial and physical support to not only maintain, but improve All Saints Camp and its facilities. The committee is reaching out to all parishes of the entire Diocese of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA and their members, urging them to undertake the maintenance and upkeep of individual structures.
We are greatly humbled by the generous donations that have already been made to this campaign. To date 6 cabins and 1 room have already been pledged for sponsorship. Currently both material and physical help are needed. One hope is that more parishes and organizations will work to raise the funds necessary, as well as arrange for “work weekends” when everyone can spend time at the camp making the necessary improvements. Parishes that are a distance from the camp can participate by being sponsors.
For more information on the S.O.S. campaign or to identify what buildings/items are still if need of sponsorship, please contact Michael Nakonachny at (440) 503-3151 or SOS@allsaintscamp.org. Additional information can also be located on the S.O.S. portion of the All Saints Camp website HERE. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
