Rex Porter Summer Camp Scholarship

Rex Porter Summer Camp Scholarship is being given in memory of one of our dear team members, Rex Porter.  He was our Public Relations officer.  Rex was instrumental in guiding us into becoming a 501 c (3) non-profit in 2014.

Many of his family and friends made a donation to Clap Your Hands in memory of Rex.  The board looked into several ways we might be able to use the funds given to us.  We wanted to do something that would honor his memory and his dedication to children with disabilities.

We believe the Summer Camp Scholarship is a much needed program in the tri-county area.  Many families simply cannot afford to send their child to summer camp due to the extra costs associated with raising a special needs child.

It is our desire to continue providing this scholarship every year.

With Warmest Regards,

Sue Desautels
Executive Director of Clap Your Hands
