The Southampton-based Kids Stock the House non-profit organization is now the recipient of four congressional awards .
Last week, Congressman Tim Bishop presented several East End students with a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for Outstanding and Invaluable Service at the 7-Eleven store in Southampton — a popular fundraising location for Kids Stock the House.
During the event, the congressman expressed his appreciation to Kids Stock the House for its dedication to the community.
Among the honorees were students Ronald Aucapina, Jocelynn Aucapina, William Dzanoucakis, Kimberly Castro, Daniela Gutierrez, Walter Alexander Lane, Erica Kane, Lauren Valle, Alessandra Porco, Jessica Penna.
Also honored were Tom and Mary Souhrada, owners of the 7-Eleven.
"We are grateful to Congressman Bishop for taking the time to meet with us,: said Donna Oliverio, founder of the three-year old organization. "Kids Stock the House will continue its mission of supporting families of seriously ill children of the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, cultivating service and leadership among today's youth, and promoting compassionate empathy to lessen anger and bullying and to bring communities together."
