2017 Gift Of The Heart – Williamstown High School

Woodbury, NJ, June 5, 2017
For Immediate Release

The law firm of Hoffman DiMuzio has allocated close to half a million dollars to its “Gift of the Heart” Community Scholarship Foundation. Forty-one graduating seniors from Gloucester and Salem County High Schools have been selected to receive a one thousand dollar scholarship for embodying the service ideals of the program. This week, the 2017 “Gift of the Heart” Hoffman DiMuzio Community Service Foundation recipients are from Williamstown High School: Faith Whyte and Christian Kells.

Faith Whyte

Faith Whyte Williamstown ScholarhipDuring her summers, Faith Whyte volunteers at Camp Haluwasa as an overnight camp counselor. Her role entails providing mentorship to children ages six to thirteen. Additionally she’s responsible for planning numerous crafts, games, and activities. In off seasons she continues to support the camp as a counselor and operations staff member during overnight retreats.

With a local church, Faith also volunteers at a Vacation Bible School. She assists by aiding a preschool teacher with teaching lessons, crafts, games and stories. Each week she coordinates a student showcase presentation. In her high school, she serves as a student member on the Board of Education and serves as her class president. In these roles she helps her community by planning events and acting as a liaison for the school.

Faith counts as one of her most fulfilling opportunities to give back her children’s book entitled We’re All Different Here. After writing, illustrating and publishing her book, she chose to give 100% of her earnings to Martino Cartier’s “Wigs for Wishes” foundation and the Monroe Township Public School System. This experience has provided Faith with a new platform; she has had the opportunity to visit several elementary schools to meet and read to students.

After graduation, Faith plans on continuing to serve her community. Great work Faith!

Christian Kells

Christian Kells Williamstown ScholarshipEarly on in life, Christian Kells spent a large amount of time in hospitals due to a medical condition. In ten years he had a total of 488 overnight stays. When he was younger he recalls wishing to never return. Now as a high school student with his health largely stabilized, he visits the hospital frequently once more, but now as a volunteer.

With the Chop Ambassador program, Christian goes to the Children’s Hospital to visit with kids who are ill. He explains that it’s his personal mission to help provide these patients with perspective, and to help them foster a sense of positivity.

In addition to Chop, Christian also volunteers with organizations in his high school. Some of his past projects have included toy drives, walks for awareness, charity drives, and community cleanups. He also volunteers as a childcare provider at a daycare. In this role he makes flyers, newsletters, and updates the facility’s webpage. In his spare time, when he’s not volunteering, Christian also has three jobs. Great work Christian!

Congratulations are extended to Faith Whyte and Christian Kells as well as their proud family and friends! Their community service embodies a Gift of the Heart.

Next week’s featured recipients will be from Woodbury High School.
