The Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund has officially given out $1 million in grants to send at-risk children touched by gun violence to summer sleep-away camp.
“Standing up against gun violence and for gun safety legislation has been a mission of my life. That is why I was so grateful and proud to be recognized by the Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund,” Zimmerman said in a statement. “The unwavering strength and courage of my dear friends Linda Beigel Schulman and Michael Schulman in the face of unspeakable tragedy are a constant source of inspiration for me. It is an honor to stand with them, remembering Scott’s dedication to children and honoring his legacy by sending at-risk youth touched by gun violence to sleep-away camp.”
“We made Robert Zimmerman our 2023 Honoree because Robert has stood with us from the very beginning in supporting the mission of the Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund, to send at-risk underserved children touched by gun violence to summer sleep-away camp,” Linda Beigel Schulman said in a statement. “He believes, as I do, in pre-habilitation…keeping young children out of the criminal justice system and giving them hope and opportunity for their future. Robert’s staunch support of reasonable gun safety laws, on a statewide and national level, shows his dedication to the safety of children everywhere.”
