On January 25, 2015, our 8' x 16' enclosed trailer containing $55,000 worth of camping and playground equipment was stolen off of the Georgia Jaycees parking lot in Woodstock, GA. A police report was immediately taken, and the Criminal Investigation Division conducted thorough searches, but there are still no leads as to who stole the trailer or its whereabouts.
The trailer was stored at the Woodstock Jaycees grounds for safekeeping until it was needed again during the summer camping sessions. Among the things stolen in the trailer were medical equipment and supplies, a large customized water slide, special tools, art supplies, and playground equipment that was created specifically for special needs children.
JR Clark, the president of the foundation says, “I don’t know what kind of person could steal something so valuable from the kids. They’re not just stealing material objects with a numerical value, they’re stealing memories and smiles off the faces of these children who benefit so much from coming to this camp.”
The Foundation is relying on the generous support of sponsors and donors to help replenish the stolen items. “Although this is a major setback for us, we will still try to do everything in our power to restore the stolen items so the kids can continue to have their usual summer camping sessions in June,” Clark says.
