Summer camp became a reality for many more children this week when the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation presented the Fairfax County Park Foundation with a check for $10,000. This funding will provide summer camp scholarships for youth in transition and permanent supportive housing options for children in temporary shelters. The Fairfax County Park Authority PACT program coordinates these efforts that have assisted hundreds of families over the years.

This contribution continues a legacy of giving by the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation which has provided more than $177,000 in support of Park Authority programs and facilities including Clemyjontri Park, the RecPac summer camp program and the PACT program
