MANKATO, Minn. — Those who know a child or teen who has experienced the loss of a loved one can request a care package from Camp Oz Cares to help them celebrate the lives of their deceased loved one.
As part of the Camp Oz Cares 2021 Holiday Edition, which is sponsored by Mayo Clinic Health System's Hospice Department, care packages will be sent by mail to children and teens in kindergarten through 12th grade. Package contents will focus on holidays and special days.
Each package will contain:
- Grief and remembrance activities
- Coping strategies
- Memory crafts
- Fun games
Care packages will arrive in late fall. They are free and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
