Please Help Us Raise Money To Support Riverbend's Summer Camp Interns!

In 2016, FORB contributed $12,000 to pay the salaries of five summer interns.  The park ran a total of 35 different camps, each of which requires one park staff member and one summer intern.  FORB's support of these summer interns has enabled Riverbend to minimize costs to the public and offer a wider variety of programs. 

Donation Goal for Summer Interns

Collected: $1,000.00
Goal: $7,000.00
