CAPIC DeLeo Scholarship Fund Press Release

July 16, 2015

In 2013 CAPIC established the Robert DeLeo Scholarship fund in recognition of the numerous contributions made in support of Community Action by the Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo. Each year, the fund provides two local children residing in the Speaker’s district to attend CAPIC’s Summer Camp Program. Without this scholarship these children would not be able to participate in summer camp activities and develop life skills in a positive, healthy, and fun environment, becoming more responsible and independent. CAPIC’s Summer Camp Program has a positive impact on all youth involved. CAPIC is pleased to announce that two youth have been provided with Robert DeLeo Fund Scholarships and are currently attending the 2015 Summer Camp Program.
