The Artful Lodger is excited for the opportunity to collaborate with Lee Industries in supporting a very special local organization. For 13 years, Camp Kesem at UVA has served 100+ children annually, providing a fun-filled free overnight camp experience for children who have been affected by a parent diagnosed with cancer. The camp experience is provided by highly dedicated and trained University student volunteers. All campers have a parent who is in treatment for cancer, is in remission, or has passed. The mission of Camp Kesem is to provide an enjoyable camp experience in which children can build friendships and gain strength from peers facing similar challenges. www.campkesem.org
The Artful Lodger is appreciative of Lee Industries “Lee Gives Back” initiative and will donate Lee’s 5% discount to Camp Kesem. The word “kesem” is a noun of Hebrew origin which loosely translates as “magic; the ability to change a life; an agent of growth; power that transforms”. We thank Lee Industries for providing us with an opportunity to make a significant contribution to a very special segment of our Charlottesville community.
