“We were excited for this camp opportunity to bring happiness to children and to our frontline Emergency Disasters Services volunteers while helping to keep them safe,” David Ortiz explained. “It is imperative that we give back to those vital organizations, like The Salvation Army, that have cared for so many of us during this difficult time. We are honored to make this generous donation together with ThinkLite.”
