Sara Langnas is looking forward to her sixth year at
Tamarack Camps. She knows how lucky she is each
summer, but also understands that not every kid has
the same opportunity she does.
So she is raising money for the "Send a Kid to
Tamarack" fund that helps fulfill the agency's goal
that every Jewish child should be able to go to camp.
She has raised more than $500 since January
through her project of collecting returnable cans and
bottles for their deposits. She will continue collecting
through May. This is a project for her bat mitzvah at
Congregation Shaarey Zedek West Bloomfield, B'nai
