Nickitas Camp Scholarship Fund
We are thankful to Mr. James Nickitas, of blessed memory, for having the vision to set up this scholarship fund. The fund has been integral in providing the opportunity for many of our St. George youth to attend Summer Camp. Contributions to the fund are welcome to ensure that it will effectively support our St. George youth for years to come! If you would like to contribute, please make checks payable to St. George GOC and note "Nickitas Camp Scholarship Fund" on the check. PayPal contributions (https://tinyurl.com/3v8z6jet) are also welcome. Again, please note "Nickitas Camp Scholarship Fund" on the transaction.
