Five children who lost a loved one will now be able to attend a camp to help them cope thanks to First Tennessee.

Baptist Memorial's "Camp Good Grief" is the latest winner of the First Tennessee Foundation's giving program marking the bank's 150th anniversary.  Camp Good Grief received a $5,000 grant as a part of this.

The camp provides children age seven to 12 with an enjoyable and supportive environment where they can express their feelings while coping with the loss of a loved one.

Camp Good Grief also utilizes art, music and recreation to help the children explore their grief and move forward; campers even meet with other children going through  similar losses.

To vote for other Tennessee programs to receive $5,000 as a part of First Tennessee's anniversary, check out their website.
