The Scungio Borst Foundation
The Scungio Borst Foundation’s mission to raise money for regionally based charities that align with our philanthropy of supporting less fortunate children in Camden, NJ.
For the past six years, Teddy’s Toys for Camden Kids and The Hispanic Family Center have been the recipients of all proceeds collected at the annual Scungio Borst Charity Event & Golf Tournament. This year, The Scungio Borst Foundation is happy to continue with the tradition of supporting these and other wonderful Camden-based charities.
All proceeds collected from the 2021 event will be equally donated to Teddy’s Toys, a Child Life Program at Children’s Regional Hospital, and Mighty Writers.
Who We Support
A Child Life Program at Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper University Health Care in Camden, NJ consists of a dedicated team of Child Life Specialists who understand that illness and hospitalization are stressful events in the lives of children and their families. Having a strong background in child development and family systems, Child Life Specialists use age-appropriate education, preparation, medical and therapeutic play, and supportive activities to promote effective coping and optimal development in children facing challenging healthcare experiences. The Child Life team strives to make the hospital experience a positive one by offering psychosocial and emotional support to children and families.
Mighty Writers is an organization that provides free food distribution, writing workshops, educational resources, and career guidance to young adults and children in Camden, NJ, and Philadelphia, PA. Their mantra has always been “Teach kids to think clearly so they can write with clarity”.
Teddy’s Toys for Camden Kids is an annual toy drive in memory of Theodore “Teddy” Hinson, Sr and his enduring commitment to give back to his community by providing holiday cheer to the children of Camden. This and other Camden-based charities are always the recipients of funds raised at our event.
The Hispanic Family Center of Southern New Jersey, Inc. (HFC) through its comprehensive programs and services will address the immediate needs (physical, mental, social, economic, and political) of the residents of Southern New Jersey, as well as establish itself as an instrument of change and a voice of power for the consumers it serves and represents.
