A Message From Jessica De Anda (Pinto Bean)
As a UniCorps Advisor for UCLA's official student charity, UniCamp, I aim to motivate a group of high school students to find joy in serving others. This summer, their service will allow younger campers to participate in programs designed to promote healthy habits that they can practice down the mountain. All campers come from low-income backgrounds, so in order to attend camp, we fundraise to help subsidize the cost of camp—$600 per camper—by about 80%. Last summer, I experienced the warmth of singing songs, playing games, and telling stories with my campers under the stars. It was simply amazing to see them smile and create lasting memories with their peers over the course of camp. Any amount you are willing to donate can really help give youth the opportunity for a memorable summer.
