The Rebecca Circle of the Saint Katherine Philoptochos had a Kids 'n' Cancer Loukoumades Fundraiser in February, and with the money raised will be able to pay for six children to attend Camp Agape at the Saint Nicholas Ranch and Retreat Center this summer. The Camp is for children and their families who are affected by cancer, to spend a week together bonding with fellowship and fun activities like planting trees, singing, and swimming.
