Two Vincentian Scholars Honored by Heart, Love and Soul
Niagara University students Justin Crawford and Gabriella Simoneit were recognized by Heart, Love and Soul during the food pantry and dining room’s annual recognition dinner on April 6.
Crawford (a native of Tonawanda) and Simoneit (of Niagara Falls) logged 578 volunteer hours during the past two years at Heart, Love and Soul through the university’s Vincentian Scholars program, an intensive service and learning experience for highly qualified undergraduate students.
Simoneit, who also started at Heart, Love and Soul in 2015, has accumulated 294 hours of service time. While learning how nonprofits function and operate, Simoneit, also a Vincentian Scholar, has assisted with children’s activities, completing behind-the-scenes work and helping with anything technology-related.
