Camp Jenny 2019 Newsletter: Volume 1

From the Leadership Team

Hi everyone! I’m Daniel Shapiro, this year’s CJ Co-Director from NFTY-STR, and I can’t wait for all of us to begin working together! Thank you to everyone who has begun working for this year’s program and everyone who has begun their fundraising efforts. Every 2-3 weeks, we will be posting a newsletter, such as this one, to give updates on our planning, tips and tricks for your fundraising efforts, to introduce you to members of our CJ Leadership Team, and to recognize successful fundraising efforts so far! Make sure to read about our exciting 2/22 fundraising incentive below! Jake and I can’t wait to see everyone at Camp Jenny and we’re so proud to have each of you on our incredible staff!
