Camp Blessing is a Christian camp for individuals of ALL abilities that is located in Brenham, Texas. It was started in 2006 and for 11 summers, rented facilities. In 2017 Camp Blessing purchased a 158-acre facility outside of Brenham, Texas and operates 10 weeks of summer camp for special needs campers, and their siblings as well as a Christian retreat center in the non-summer months.
Each year over 1,200 middle school and high school-aged volunteers and 130 college-aged staff seek to share the love of Jesus through an iconic camp experience with 770 campers, and their siblings. With the generosity of organizations like Resale with a Purpose, Camp Blessing will be able to expand its ministry reach and impact more individuals with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We will use the funds to develop and expand new and existing activities to further enhance the camper experience as well as be able to offer scholarships to those individuals that cannot afford to come to camp. We are beyond grateful for the partnership of Resale with a Purpose in supporting like-minded Christ-centered ministries.
You made my day! It was great to meet you and I hope we have an opportunity to get together again soon! I just had to reach out and thank you as quickly as I was able!!
I’ve only been at the helm of Shield Bearer for three weeks and I have been overwhelmed by the generosity and passion of our volunteers, staff, counselors, and community supporters. After the fantastic reception this morning I was floored again by the generous gift from Resale With a Purpose! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support for our life-changing mission to heal the hearts of Houston families, trauma victims, and those in most need of help and support.
The incredibly generous donation of $10,000 you delivered today will go a long way to helping us end mental health stigma, reunite relationships, heal broken marriages, and provide services to human trafficking victims, and veterans plus so many more. Over 400 couples, trauma survivors, or others who are unable to secure services elsewhere due to financial hardship will be able to receive treatment here at Shield Bearer from licensed professionals because of Resale With a Purpose!
Thank you! You have made a real difference in the lives of those within our community.
Bruce, thank you once again for your visit and gift. It means the world to us!
COCI’s No More Victims
Thank you so much for your support, not just this year, but stretching back. How does this sound:
COCI’s No More Victims Program Receives $12,500 Grant From Resale With A Purpose
For two decades, No More Victims founder Marilyn Gambrell has worked with teens who are living with the trauma of having one or more parent that has been incarcerated. These youths are at higher risk of suicide, dropping out and winding up continuing the family cycle of incarceration. Despite those grim statistics, of the more than 1600 students how have been in No More Victims, nearly everyone has graduated from high school and very few have been incarcerated as adults. Learn more about our program at www.cherishourchildren.org.
We are so very appreciative of Resale With A Purpose and the support that it has demonstrated for our mission. In many ways, we are working with some of the most at-risk children in Texas and support from RWAP helps make it possible for us to be successful. The shop’s model helps the community twice – once by making quality clothing available at low cost and then by investing its revenue back into valuable projects.
