Kids’ camp gets grants

Victory Junction Gang Camp gets more than $600,000, plus a bus.

RANDLEMAN, N.C. — The Victory Junction Gang Camp in Randleman for children with life-threatening and chronic illnesses has received three gifts totaling more than $600,000, plus a bus.

The Jeff Gordan Foundation and the Civitans of Western North Carolina each pledged $250,000 to sponsor a camper cabin, two of the 16 at the camp, which is scheduled to open next summer.

The Southeast division of Interstate Bakeries Corp. in Kansas City, Mo., donated $58,835, representing a portion of proceeds from every loaf of Merita Old-Fashioned Bread sold this fall at every store in the Harris Teeter and Lowe’s Foods chains, and in every Food Lion store in the Southeast.

The camp also received $45,000 from the Southern New York Racing Association, and a 14-passenger bus, equipped with a wheel-chair lift, donated by Thomas Built Buses in High Point.
