Christian Oliveros, a student at Southampton High School, was presented with a Special Certificate of Congressional Recognition for Outstanding Service to the Community from U.S. Rep. Tim Bishop, of Southampton, for the time he dedicates to the nonprofit Kids Stock the House.
Kids Stock the House is a local organization created to support the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. Ronald McDonald House exists to provide a home-away-from-home for families so they can stay close by when children are hospitalized.
Kids Stock the House founder and director Donna Oliverio nominated Christian for his dedication, compassion and consistency in his volunteer work.
Christian is the type of kid who will continue to enrich his community and touch many more lives,” Oliverio said.
As a volunteer for Kids Stock the House, Christian participated in Cheer for a Cure, played on the Altruistic All Star team in the Community Softball-A-Thon, and supported the Ronald McDonald House’s Walk of Love. He also attended a ceremony at the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island and assisted the organization during the Southampton Village Independence Day Parade and the the San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons Parade. He has also recruited fellow volunteers for the organization.
