Westfield Bank Holds Fundraiser for Kamp

Earlier this summer, Westfield Bank held a fundraising event to collect money and supplies for BHN’s Kamp for Kids™ program.

Lauri Lavell, vice president of Westfield Bank, organized “Jeans Day,” in which employees at any of Westfield Bank’s locations could make a donation to Kamp in order to wear jeans to work for the day. Thanks to Lavell’s efforts and employee donations, Westfield Bank was able to raise over $300 and collect dozens of toys and supplies for the Kampers, including stuffed animals and art supplies.

Lavell, who previously served on the board for BHN The Carson Center and still attends Kamp’s annual Welcome Day celebration each summer, was thrilled to have the opportunity to make a donation to a place that means so much to her. She plans to organize another “Jeans Day” next summer to raise additional funds for Kamp and provide the program with more of the items on its wish list.

“Kamp is just such a worthwhile place for kids, and I definitely wanted to support it,” Lavell said. “The counselors there and the director work very hard to give kids an opportunity to experience Kamp, so it’s very important that we support their efforts. ”We are incredibly grateful for Lauri’s work and for the donations from Westfield Bank’s thoughtful employees. Their donation will help ensure that Kamp for Kids is able to fulfill its mission of providing Kampers with an unforgettable camp experience.
