The Boston Red Sox and the Ron Burton Training Village have joined forces to create an exciting youth outreach program which affords the opportunity for young boys and girls to attend a fellowship retreat.
This retreat weekend is designed to teach and motivate children to be exceptional human beings not only in their homes and schools but also in their communities.
Each year, the Ron Burton Training Village is proud to host Camp Miracles & Magic to embrace young children who are infected and affected with HIV/AIDs. For one week throughout the year, boys and girls ages 5-13 enjoy a week of fun, laughter, games, carnivals and mostly love, as the Tatelman Family invites over 80 children and 80 staff and nurses to share their time and love with a group of children who struggle with the physical trials and social stigma of this dreaded disease.
Now one of the largest foundations in New England, Woburn-based Cummings Foundation currently has just more than $1.2 billion in net assets, and it has awarded more than $100 million in grants to Greater Boston nonprofits alone. Its giving is concentrated in Middlesex, Essex, and Suffolk counties and benefits a broad range of causes, including human services, education, healthcare, and social justice. The Cummings also have a special interest in Rwanda, where the Foundation collaborates with Partners In Health and a limited number of other organizations to aid in that East African country’s post-genocide recovery and rebuilding.
Ron Burton Training Village was fortunate enough to receive a grant from this tremendous organization. We love and thank them for their generosity.
