Erath County Child Welfare Board to send 32 kids in CPS care to summer camp. Here’s how to help.


By SARA VANDEN BERGE


I serve on a local board that does amazing work on behalf of children.


The Erath County Child Welfare Board’s mission statement is to advocate for the needs of children in the care of Child Protective Services, raise money for the local child welfare program and educate the community about child welfare policies and needs.

The board voted on Tuesday to once again fund 32 local children currently in the care of CPS to area summer camps.


If you are a parent or guardian of children who like to stay busy during the dog days of summer, you know how incredibly expensive camps can be.


If you are an individual or business that would like to help by donating funds to the summer camp program, call 254-965-7321 ext. 2171.
