ST. LOUIS — Potter Electric Signal Company will once again be a proud participant of the Missouri Children’s Burn Camp.
The event takes place at Camp Sabra in Rocky Mount, Mo., and will occur the week of August 3, 2014. For more than 10 years, Potter has been a stout supporter and believer in the Missouri Children’s Burn Camp, and looks forward to working with Burns Recovered Support Group, Incorporated, who has run the event every year dating back to its inauguration in 1997.
With the assistance of St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, Burns Recovered Support Group, Inc. was formed in 1983 by a group of burn survivors. Their mission was and still is survivor support, along with aiding medical facilities and providing burn care education and burn prevention. The Burn Camps hosts between 75 and 85 children every year with that amount growing annually. Organizers of the 18th Annual Missouri Children’s Burn Camp raised approximately $150,000 for the child burn survivor’s community.
“Potter is honored to support the Missouri Children’s Burn Camp,” says Bernard Lears, president and CEO, Potter Electric. “This noble cause truly gives back to the community and touches the hearts of so many. Severe burns are a terrible tragedy, and Potter strives to prevent such occurrences everyday through our innovation and continued dedication to life safety. Burns Recovered Support Group provides an invaluable service to those in need and Potter looks forward to continuing to support this deserving cause in the future.”
Due to the support of generous sponsors, all participants enjoy a week full of fun and support at no cost. The Burn Camp is intended for child burn survivors between the ages of 6-17 with severe burns. To donate to Missouri Children’s Burn Camp, visit brsg.org.
