Camp HHC, the 8-week summer camp program of Helping Hands Center for Special Needs, welcomes the New Basics Brass Band to its playground for a concert and children’s parade, part of the center’s July 4th Celebration. This concert is being funded in part by a grant from the Henry E. Coyle Fund of The Columbus Foundation.
