California's Camp Arroyo

ABC News in the Bay Area (you know, around San Francisco) recently produced this strong segment on Camp Arroyo, which hosts thousands of children with illnesses each summer. For free.

This particular news story, in which Cheryl Jennings focuses on a Camp Arroyo session for children with celiac disease, spotlights Dr. Doug Corley, YMCA chef Nicole Lucia, breadmaker Anna Sobaski of Breads from Anna, and camp co-founder Elaine Taylor, of the Taylor Family Foundation. She herself has been diagnosed with celiac disease. Also appearing are NFL veteran Rich Gannon and his daughter Danielle,

The Taylor Family Foundation is having its annual "Day in the Park" fundraiser at Camp Arroyo (in Livermore California) this Sunday, August 24, 2008. People involved in the event include Jennings and former women's soccer Olympian Brandi Chastain.

The camp's donation page is here.
