Formed in August 2017, The TPK Group (The Peppiest Kids) is a true 100% volunteer organization made up of former staff of Friendly House and Hidden Hollow Camp. Friendly House made a significant difference to the persons we are today. Our mission is to support the mission of Friendly House and Hidden Hollow Camp through volunteerism and fundraising efforts. To be involved with the volunteerism and events with TPK, please contact Greg Mead for more information.
Weekend Of Giving – Annually in June
The main fundraising event for TPK is the Weekend Of Giving (WoG), which started in 2018. This event is held in mid-June at Hidden Hollow Camp and has met with great success. Projects get done around the camp to improve facilities and give some areas of camp a much needed face lift. To date, over $88,000 has been raised through both financial and supply donations; and, TPK has clocked over 2875 volunteer hours. All persons in attendance are volunteers who donated both time and money to participate in the weekend.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 the 2020 WoG was cancelled. You can still help TPK this year. The AmazonSmile Friendly House Wish List is available to send needed gifts to Friendly House any time. Follow this link to our Wish List. There are many more projects to be done!
2021 Weekend Of Giving
Watch this space as updates for the 2021 Weekend Of Giving are announced.
TPK also offers other social and fun events that continue to raise additional funds for Friendly House and the camps. In the last several years TPK has sponsored a Golf Outing at Little Apple Country Club in Bellville and a ReProm at Snow Trails. In 2020, TPK was able to bring together a small group of volunteers, socially distanced, to help Friendly House construct 40 new counselor beds at Hidden Hollow.
