PARSIPPANY — On Wednesday February 13, Merri Duchak, Janet Nemec and Parsippany Elks Lodge member Mike Pietrowicz presented a check for $2,000 donation to the Elk’s Camp Moore for Special Needs Children.
The donation was made in the honor of Larry Eckel. Larry was an avid supporter and dedicated countless hours on this Elks Special Needs Children committee for many years. Larry was passionate about this cause and the children were very near and dear to Larry’s heart…he truly cared about each and every one of these special kids!!
The donation came from an organization called “The Friends of Doug Duchak”. Merri, Janet and Mike are members on this foundation which helps raise money for two important causes that were close to Doug’s heart…recreational and social opportunities for individuals with special needs and scholarships for deserving high school students.
The organization, with the help from Mike, decided to choose Camp Moore to donate to this year. The Elks graciously thanks you for your generosity and most importantly, helping our Special Needs Children.
Elks Camp Moore for Special Needs Children is tucked away in the hill of the Ramapo Mountains. Elks Camp Moore offers a fun filled vacation away from home for children with special needs. A week at Elks Camp Moore is a remarkable experience not soon to be forgotten. The primary goal of the camp is to further develop the recreational and social skills of each child. In a relaxed and accepting atmosphere , each camper experiences new adventures, lasting friendships, and opportunities that promote independence and greater self-confidence.
