United Together at Rochester's Sunshine Camp
07/11/2022 · Newsroom Highlight
In honor of this year’s United Way Day of Caring, roughly 150 Rochester-area Wegmans employees volunteered at the Rochester Rotary Sunshine Camp, a fully accessible residential summer camp that serves children with disabilities and their families. Wegmans has a long history of supporting Sunshine Camp through financial contributions and hundreds of volunteer hours. In celebration of the camp’s centennial year, our employees spent three days at the 157-acre camp getting it camper-ready. Projects included, deep cleaning all areas of the camp, painting cabins, building a new shed and fire pit, and planting and mulching flower beds, to name just a few.
“My Grandfather always had a special place in his heart for the Rochester Rotary Sunshine Camp and the amazing experiences they create for children with disabilities,” said Colleen Wegman, president and CEO of Wegmans Food Markets. “It’s been so incredible to see our employees come together to support the camp and its campers over the years, and it was particularly special for all of us to give back to this remarkable organization in celebration of their 100 years serving our community.”
