Fundraiser held for Camp New Hope

Blast-It-All, at 185 Piper Ave., will host a benefit sale Sept. 26 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. for Camp New Hope, a free camp for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Other sponsors are the Apple Baking Co. and Cheerwine Bottling. Items for sale include NASCAR memorabilia, antiques, yard-sale items and more. All proceeds go to Camp New Hope, a nonprofit, 172-acre camp on the New River near West Jefferson.
The year-round camp provides food, fun and lodging for children and 10 of their family members each week, free of charge.
Camp New Hope also offers canoeing, tubing, fishing, volleyball, basketball and bonfires.
Campers can also explore trails that are named after the children and watch birds. Each child is given a birdhouse with his or her name and date they were at the camp on it, and they get to choose a spot anywhere on the property to hang the birdhouse so that when they return, they can see the birds living there.
The property also includes the Chapel of Hope, the Garden of Hope and the Cross of Hope.
