Dear Mary Merritt, Brittany Brancato, et. al. of the National Capital Area Office of the American Diabetes Association: On behalf of the entire Schommer family, I would like to thank you for sponsoring Evelynís up and coming attendance and participation in Camp Glyndon at Lions Camp Merrick Diabetes Camp in Nanjemoy session week No. 2 this coming July 15 to 20. Your support will help Evelyn develop her sense of responsibility and increase her level of self care, as it pertains to her Type I diabetes. Your contribution will enable her to participate in her first experience in a summer camp environment, and this, no doubt, will be a great opportunity to broaden her discipline and character, in any given environment, home or away; skills that are invaluable to her future endeavors, health and well being living with Type I diabetes.
The sponsorship provided by you, the National Capital Area Office of the ADA, will provide Evelyn with an opportunity that would otherwise not be available to her. In the bigger picture, the dedication of the American Diabetes Association to support a camp such as Camp Glyndon Diabetes Summer Camp at Lion's Camp Merrick provides an opportunity for many other children that live with diabetes every day. Your contribution is not just a charitable contribution, but is an investment in the future and development of a healthy young person of many healthy young people. Thank you once again for your generous support.
Jonas R. and Nancy M. Schommer, Great Mills
