NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Former New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Ben Grubbs, his wife Shania, and their three children (The Grubbs Family) have been long-time supporters of Son of a Saint. This year, The Grubbs Family is sponsoring a Camp Giveaway to equip more than 50 Son of a Saint mentees with the supplies, attire, and specialized gear they need to have a successful trip and experience.
The goal is that summer camp travel, and its associated costs, are never a barrier for Son of a Saint’s mentees to participate and benefit from these types of important, formative experiences. Every summer, Son of a Saint mentees attend camp all over the country (from New England, to North Carolina, Indiana, Wisconsin, and more).
- Mentees and their families will gather for a camp sendoff dinner on the evening of Thursday, June 1, at the Son of a Saint headquarters, where they will mingle, and build relationships with the fellow mentees attending the same camps.
- The Grubbs Family will share remarks and words of encouragement to the group, and have an opportunity to connect and mingle with attendees.
- The mentees will also participate in a giveaway where they will be provided with the items (backpacks, sleeping bags, first aid kits, bug spray, pillows, etc.).
