BRC gets new gazebo thanks to Light and campers

GREENVILLE – The Brethren Retirement Community was chosen as the location of the 2014 Camp Vohokase community service project.

Former NFL star Matt Light, along with members of the Light Foundation, worked with the 14 campers Monday, July 21 to erect a wooden gazebo at the rear of the facility. The guys also did a little landscaping and weed pulling before returning to camp at Chenoweth Trails.

During the ten-day program, campers participate in on-site and community-based programs intended to instill leadership, including trail-based activities – such as fishing and archery – a community service project, and site visits to area businesses, according to the MattLight72.com website.

This year the camp worked with Drew Brees’ foundation  to bring some boys from New Orleans. Other campers came from Tennessee, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Each year four campers graduate the program, which according to Light, “really gives them a sense of self-worth”.
