Camp Healing Hearts Volunteer Wins Community Foundation Philanthropy Award

18 year old Sophia Sportelli from Christian Brothers Academy won the 2019 CNY Community Foundation Award for Philanthropy. Since Sophia was in 4th grade she has been finding ways to give back to the community.

We applaud Sophia’s determination to be a force of good helping people who are in need whether they are children who are trying to cope with a loss or the terminally ill patients Hospice serves at Francis House.

While Sportelli says she has learned a lot from her experiences at Camp Healing Hearts, it’s all of us who can learn from watching this young woman live a life devoted to helping others.

Camp Healing Hearts runs August 26th through August 29th. We are always looking for volunteers, you have to be at least 16 years old. For more information about Camp Healing Hearts click here.
