DermacareCARES

The DermacareCARES charitable program was created in 2006, and for the past eight years DermacareCARES has helped to send volunteers and resources for a week-long, overnight Bible school camp called Camp Hands of Joy for over 200 deaf children. For these children, many of whom live in severe poverty, a week at camp means three square meals per day, a feeling of security, and a chance to just have a lot of fun.

Another way DermacareCARES has helped the deaf children in the Dominican Republic is by providing the salaries for a much needed Teacher's Aid and a seamstress for a deaf school in Santo Domingo, Centro de Sordos. The seamstress teaches the older girls a trade, so when they graduate they can earn a living. One of the graduates, Gileania, has already found her path in life making beautiful curtains for the more expensive homes in the D.R.

Subscribers to our Dermacare e-newsletter are kept informed of ways they can help with this very worthy cause such as donating items to the Camp Hands of Joy rummage sale, sponsoring a child to attend camp for only $80, or purchasing tickets for our Dermacare Makeover Raffle with all proceeds going to the cost of putting on the camp. For details, call Jennifer at 352-331-5355. Thank you for your support!
