New York Life Sponsors TAPS Good Grief Camps and Provides Scholarships to Attend
The grant supports a four-day TAPS Good Grief Camp for children and teens. The funding will also provide families and mentors with assistance for travel expenses.
Approximately 500 children and teens are expected to attend this four-day gathering being held in Washington, D.C., over Memorial Day weekend, May 22-25, 2015. They will participate in age-appropriate bereavement activities that help them cope with the loss of a loved one who served in the Armed Forces. In addition, children and teens will have the opportunity to participate in fun group events where they can bond with their peers and military mentors. New York Life employees will donate their time to assist with the weekend activities as they have since the partnership began in 2012....
