Recession pinches donations to camps for children with special needs

One Step At A Time, a summer camp for cancer and leukemia patients run by a Chicago-based organization, has suffered a more than 20 percent drop in donations.

Summer camps serving children with special needs are seeing a drop in donations, largely because of corporate cutbacks. Officials at Chicago-based Children's Oncology Services, which runs the One Step At A Time camp for cancer and leukemia patients, says donations are down more than 20%. "There have been some other challenging years, but I think this is one of the worst," said a program director for the American Diabetes Association in Illinois. Medill Reports (Chicago)
