Kitchen Hood Fundraiser

A Year Of The Unexpected

Since Covid, we have had financial setbacks, things like decreases in monthly donations, external events like retreats and weddings being canceled, and more. And now to add to all the unknowns and the chaos of this year we have reached a point in the dining hall project, where despite our thoughtful plans, we are coming to you with an unexpected ask. Our initial budget for the dining hall and kitchen included a donated second-hand exhaust hood. Because this large item was donated, it allowed us to save thousands of dollars. Unfortunately, due to a variety of factors, we are no longer able to use this exhaust hood. This is a must-have item in the kitchen as it removes airborne grease, fumes, smoke, odors, heat, and steam from the air. Additionally, it protects from grease fires and will be required to pass final inspection.

We need $60,000 to cover the cost of a new commercial exhaust hood with a fire suppression system. So we are coming to you this 2020 Christmas season, asking for help. If you have the means, please consider giving to this project so we can finish the vision God has placed on Camp Daniel. Every day we will continue to move towards a completed campus for all to access, while providing opportunities for people with disabilities, always knowing this is God’s timing, not ours.

Why Now?

There has been a growing demand for a facility that better fits the needs of people with disabilities. Camp Daniel has reached a pivotal point where the uncompleted campground restricts us from meeting the growing demand of the disabled community. Approximately 10% of applicants each summer are turned away due to facility limitations at the campground that Camp Daniel rents. These limitations include lack of wheelchair accessibility to the lakefront, cabins, bathrooms, and recreational areas. There are recurring maintenance problems every summer that affect the campers directly. Time is of the essence, as the rented campground is becoming increasingly difficult to meet the requirements of Camp Daniel’s campers.

Right now my son, Jacob, cannot attend Camp Daniel because of the rented campus’s physical limitations. When the new campus is finished we will be able to send him for the very first time. He is always asking when the new camp will be finished...
