Passion: Serving others, athletics and family

Years with KHK: 1.5

Although Sofia has just recently joined Kids Helping Kids, she is actively involved in the program because she loves serving others. At her school, Sofia participates with two other community service clubs in addition to volunteering with Kids Helping Kids. She credits KHK with helping her initiate and communicate new ideas, develop her public speaking, and increase her confidence to meet more people.

Her favorite project to date is the Gift of Giving. She loves that it impacts so many young children in the community. It’s a busy afternoon with lots to do, but she enjoys seeing the wonder and amazement in the eyes of the kids who can shop for holiday gifts!
