King Kullen helps fund summer camp programs

King Kullen Grocery Co., Inc., has donated $10,000 to benefit summer camp programs for disadvantaged children in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

The donation, a tradition started by King Kullen in 1992, will be divided evenly between Family & Children’s Association (Nassau) and Family Service League (Suffolk).

“Camp provides a stimulating and fun environment where children can learn new activities and meet other children their age,” King Kullen president and COO Joseph W. Brown, said in a company statement. “King Kullen’s gift will help fund scholarships for children whose families lack the resources for summer camp. Additionally, customers who want to make a difference can participate in our annual ‘Send A Kid to Camp’ campaign this summer by scanning $5, $2, or $1 coupons at the register at all King Kullen and Wild by Nature stores.”

Family and Children’s Association President and CEO Dr. Jeffrey Reynolds said: “The gifts we receive from individuals and corporations like King Kullen make it possible for us to provide these wonderful experiences for Long Island’s young people. We’re incredibly thankful to King Kullen for all their support through the years.”

Family Service League Chief Development Officer Jonathan Chenkin added his nonprofit is “very grateful to again receive this generous donation from King Kullen. These camps are often the highlight of the year for the children we help, bringing them the Power of Play and allowing them to be joyful.”
