Public Vote Can Help Support a Bereavement Camp at Cohen Children’s Medical Center
Date:1/28/2013

New Hyde Park, NY (PRWEB) January 28, 2013

The Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York (CCMC), part of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, has a unique opportunity to receive a grant from Bioheat® Fuel. A public voting selection process will determine if CCMC will receive funding. New York residents are asked to visit BioheatOnline.com to vote for the charity they feel best helps those in need starting January 28, 2013.

If awarded, funds will support CCMC’s Center for Healing Opportunity Perseverance and Enlightenment (the Center for HOPE), which delivers innovative bereavement programs for children and families. The Center’s mission is to nurture children’s natural capacity to heal after a loss by providing a safe haven, innovative educational programs, and skilled counseling that support the grieving and recovery processes.

Specifically, funding from Bioheat would be used to re-establish Camp HOPE, the Center’s free weekend-long bereavement camp, which had previously been suspended due to budgetary constraints. This grant would enable the camp to re-launch for a weekend in September 2013 and bring together twenty-five 7-13 year-old children for fun camp activities combined with grief education and emotional support. Susan Thomas, Bereavement Coordinator and Director of the Center states, “This unique camp experience resonates with children, offering campers the opportunity to establish friendships within a compassionate and caring community.” A grant from Bioheat would allow Camp HOPE to remain free of charge to all children and would cover all related expenses, including bus transportation, campsite rental fees, staffing expenses, activity materials, and food and beverage for campers.

Bioheat established their NYC Bioheat Proud 2B2 Renewable Warmup campaign to thank New York City for its recent mandate requiring all heating oil contain B2 Bioheat® Fuel, which is renewable and burns more cleanly. The campaign also serves to give back to the New York community following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. Superstorm Sandy has impacted the financial stability of many families, including those in need of the services provided by the Center for HOPE.

Voting begins January 28th through February 17th. Voters may make multiple entries for their favorite charity, but only once per day. Visit http://www.bioheatonline.com.
