PARSIPPANY-TROY HILLS — Britcher Leone Founding Members E. Drew Britcher, Esq. and Armand Leone, Esq. have led a project that has donated more than 100 backpacks for campers heading off to Youth Consultation Service’s (YCS) Summer Camp in Blairstown. Each filled with a pair of flip flops, swim goggles and with the camper’s own personalized name tag, the backpacks were supplied to more than 100 campers attending the two-week sleepover camp.
“For more than a decade, Britcher Leone has supported various YCS projects, and we are very excited to have been able to receive the financial support of our colleagues to give these special children a small gift as they headed off to camp, many, for the first time,” explained Britcher.
YCS Summer Camp is for YCS children who have suffered trauma, either through chaotic or abusive childhoods, or from severe autism or other developmental disabilities, and as a result, have been removed from their homes. YCS Summer Camp is for many, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, boating, swimming, camp arts and crafts, nature walks, camp songs and more. For two weeks, campers take part in activities that encourage teamwork and confidence and offer them exciting experiences in a caring and safe environment.
“Drew Britcher and Armand Leone are true champions of the children of YCS. We are so grateful for their support of YCS Summer Camp, as well as their amazing generosity throughout the year,” said Francis Spiegel, assistant vice president of development for YCS Foundation.
Founded in 1918, Youth Consultation Service (YCS) provides mental health, education and social services, healing hearts and renewing hope for over 1,700 NJ children each day. YCS makes a real difference in the lives of those who have suffered at the hands of abuse and neglect, have developmental disabilities, or face mental health challenges and intervenes at a time of intense crisis in a child’s life to provide clinical care, health, social services, education, and love. YCS residential programs include group homes, shelters and foster care. Its special education and autism schools welcome children from YCS and from the community. YCS outreach includes home visitation and family preservation programs designed to help children and their families regain their emotional strength without disrupting their lives any further.
