Camp ASCCA plans to use the $45,000 donation from Alabama Farmers Federation and Alfa Insurance Co. to renovate the Hoyt Webb Pavilion, the central hub of activity at the 230-acre camp for people with disabilities at Lake Martin near Dadeville.
"The pavilion is in need of many renovations in order to continue to provide a high level of service," said Camp Administrator John Stephenson. "Alfa's donation will fund repairs to the metal roof, extensive restroom renovation, new overhead lighting, water damage repair throughout the building plus interior and exterior painting."
This is the second time Alfa has assisted Camp ASCCA. Last year the organization contributed $10,000 to the camp.
"Camp ASCCA makes a tremendous contribution to the quality of life for so many of Alabama's citizens with disabilities," said Alfa President Jerry Newby. "We are pleased to have a small part in expanding those services."
Alabama Farmers Federation District 7 Board Member and Tallapoosa County Farmers Federation President John Neighbors presented a check for $22,500, the first of 2 installments, on behalf of the organization.
"Hoyt Webb was a close friend of mine for many years, so it's an honor for me to be able to present this check for improvements to a building that stands in his honor," Neighbors said. "The Tallapoosa County Farmers Federation has helped Camp ASCCA whenever it was able and I hope this donation from the state organization will help them continue the camp's mission of service to people with a range of disabilities."
In its 29 year history, Camp ASCCA has provided services to thousands of people with many different physical and mental disabilities, including Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, spinal cord injuries, mental disabilities, head injuries, and diabetes, just to name a few.
