Missions Accomplished

Chew for Charity

 

For years, Jessie Roberts has “donated” her birthday to Comfort Zone, collecting donations from family and friends. Over the past year, her school, Grange Hall Elementary in Virginia, suffered tragic losses in their community, including the deaths of parents of students and the beloved spouse of a teacher.

 

Jessi and the Student Council decided to host a “Chew for Charity” – students paid $1 and were allowed to chew gum at school on National Bubble Gum Day, and could purchase gum (donated by parents) for 25 cents. They raised over $1,100 and collected several boxes of camp supplies!

 

 


 

 

Malloy Family Annual Hunter Pace and Trail Ride Event

 

We offer a big, big thank you to the Malloy family of Amenia N.Y., who has an Annual Hunter Pace and Trail Ride Event at Wethersfield Farm, held in memory of their son and brother Kevin T. Malloy.

 

In five years, the Malloy’s have raised over $50,000 so other children may receive the type of support their family received through Comfort Zone.

 

 

 


 

 

Polar Plunge

 

For 6 years in a row, Chris Greim has hosted the Annual Polar Plunge. Hundreds of campers, volunteers, friends, and family members jump into the ocean on Cape Cod to support Comfort Zone! Afterwards (or instead), people join him for a family-friendly celebration with raffles, music, pot-luck, special guests, and more.  He and Tania Lyons (who initially came up with the idea) have raised $70,000 over the years! People love to participate, checking it off their bucket list and fundraising for Comfort Zone

 

 

 

 


 

 

Zumba Fundraiser

 

 

Jess Lavine and Renae Nichols have held three Zumba® Fundraisers since February 2014, raising nearly $10,000 to benefit Comfort Zone! Each event includes a Zumba® Kids Party and Zumba® Adult Master Class, where everyone is laughing, sweating, and feeling really good about sending kids to Comfort Zone! 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Paint Nite

 

 

Rock star volunteer Laura Ferrelli wanted to raise money for Comfort Zone Camp, and she was looking for a fun and engaging way to do it.  She did her research and found Paint Nite to be an excellent way for friends to come together to raise money for an incredible cause, while having a lot of fun doing it.  

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Monument 5K

 

 

Volunteers, campers, and families joined in on the fun, by spreading the word about the Monument 10k to raise funds for Comfort Zone, and then running in it!
