Donate Tennis Rackets, Golf Clubs and Beanie Babies to the Salvation Army Greater Newark Summer Camps

Would you like to help a child in Newark this summer?  Then please donate new or gently used tennis rackets, golf clubs (both youth and adult sizes) and Beanie Babies to the Salvation Army Summer Camp programs.  Items will be collected from June 13th – June 24th at 22 Edgewood Road in Chatham, NJ. 

The Salvation Army offers safe havens and runs summer camps for approximately 250 children at their Greater Newark locations – the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Ironbound, Valisburg and Central Ward of Newark and East Orange.  The camps run from early July to mid-August, Monday through Friday from between 8-9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  These camps offer the children many activities including performing arts, literacy, field trips and sports. Their sports programs have included soccer and basketball and the camps are hoping to expand their tennis and golf programs this summer.  With your help, we can all make this possible for the kids!

Additionally, many of these same children will have an opportunity to attend the Salvation Army’s residential camp for one week at their Camp Tecumseh location – a 400 acre facility located in Hunterdon County.  Children and their families get a chance to enjoy a range of outdoor activities and summer fun.  The Beanie Babies will be used as gifts to the children of New Jersey Veteran families that participate in the camp in late August.

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...
