An army of Samford volunteers stepped forward last week to host “CampUs,” a camp for children with special needs.  It was the initial idea of Jill Cunningham of our Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing, but Jill is quick to credit the help of dozens of people who made the experience possible.  Click on http://blog.al.com/spotnews/2013/06/camp_ends_but_memories_will_li.html#/0 to read of the impact of the program.

The world is better because Samford people see needs and then help to meet them.
