Construction on the Creation Center addition at Camp Ewalu began this past May thanks to a large gift from the Estate of Phyllis Newhouse, administered by her husband Virgil. We are so thankful for their generosity! As we near completion of this wonderful new addition, Virgil has graciously offered to match up to $50,000 for any gifts given to the Creation Center project to help raise funds to furnish the new addition, provide landscaping, and make some necessary updates to the existing building.
To date, we have received just over $18,000 towards our $50,000 goal! We have nearly $32,000 left to raise in the next month. If you have not had the opportunity to give to this project yet, remember that your gift will be doubled by matching funds up to $50,000, but only until December 1, 2015. You have the opportunity to doubly bless the ministry of Ewalu by donating to this project over the next month.
If you would like to contribute to this ministry you can send a check to Camp Ewalu (Camp Ewalu, 37776 Alpha Ave., Strawberry Point, IA 52076). Please make a note on the memo line for Chapel Fund.
