For over 50 years, Maplewood has a strong commitment to giving back to the communities that surround us and to lend a helping hand to those in need.
This is an important aspect of our philosophy, and we believe it is essential that our campers and students recognize that there are many people less fortunate.
We understand that helping others is part of the fabric of our social responsibility.
Whether organizing food drives, adopting families for the holidays, donating our facilities and staff for fundraisers, or working with the many organizations that provide support for people and families in need, we understand that helping others is part of the fabric of our social responsibility.
Many families face difficulties during the Holiday season. In the annual "Adopt-a-Family Program", Maplewood is matched with a family that creates wish lists for their children. Our staff and families have contributed generously over the years with gifts and gift cards to help these families have a happy Holiday season.
Maplewood is a lead sponsor for the School on Wheels Road Race and we have raised money and donated our facility for organization events. School on Wheels is a non-profit organization.
Their mission is to educate children impacted by homelessness by providing academic support and one-on-one mentoring. Money raised by this event will allow School on Wheels to provide tutors, backpacks, and school advocacy for children who are homeless.
Maplewood has supported the DJ Dream Fund by hosting a Family Fun Day. We also work closely with them to provide camp scholarships that allow children the opportunity to experience camp.
The DJ Dream Fund is a scholarship established in memory of Danroy Henry, Jr. (DJ), who attended high school in Easton. The funds help local students in need to participate in wellness programs, summer camps, and athletic activities.
Maplewood is a proud supporter of many local sports teams in the surrounding communities. We are also involved with community enrichment programs that support the arts, theater, museums, and schools.
