years ago, two local citizens dreamed of a special camp that would cater
to the needs of seriously ill children unable to attend regular summer
camps. In 1983, their dream came true and Camp Rainbow was established
near Clarksville, Tennessee. Because operation costs are high to run this
kind of camp, WVVR stepped up in 2010 to help make the dreams of children,
burdened by the stress of their life-threatening illness, become a reality.
Raising over $55,000 through a radiothon, WVVR was able to cover over
half of the operational costs for the camp in 2010 and bring a smile to
many local children's faces. WVVR's efforts for Camp Rainbow, however,
are only a fraction of the local community contributions WVVR has participated
in throughout 2010. WVVR also helped raise over $63,000 and four truckloads
full of needed supplies four days after a flood devastated parts of our
community. Overall, 2010 was a landmark year for WVVR in the community
with 1,215 volunteer hours worked, 20 charities helped, $296,461 raised,
10,331 school supplies gathered, 305 hours of air-time given, and 25,000
pounds of food collected. These results are a direct reflection of WVVR's
commitment to serving the community."
