Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from Champions of Caring

    VILLANOVA, Pa., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- On
 Thursday, May 10, at Drexel University's Auditorium of the Main Building in
 Philadelphia, Champions of Caring will be honoring 220 students from public,
 Archdiocesan and independent high schools in the Greater Philadelphia area.
 The Sixth Annual Awards Ceremony and Celebration will honor this year's
 Champions and Ambassadors of Caring.
     According to Barbara Greenspan Eisenbud, Founder and Executive Director,
 "Today, the majority of messages we hear about our society's young people are
 surrounded by violence and negativity.  Since 1995, Champions of Caring has
 honored 1000 students who have committed themselves to service and promotes
 them as role models -- as heroes of our time."
     At the awards ceremony Michael Levine, H.U.D. Acting Secretary's
 Representative for the Mid-Atlantic Region for the U.S. Department of Housing
 & Urban Development, will be presenting Champions of Caring with H.U.D.'s Best
 Practices Award.
     Champions of Caring is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to
 educating, sensitizing, and empowering students to take active roles in
 improving their communities.  By teaching the universal lessons of the
 Holocaust and other atrocities, Champions of Caring encourages and nurtures
 caring behavior to combat the "disease of indifference" which continues to
 plague our society.  Students address issues such as hunger, homelessness,
 illiteracy, the environment, the elderly and youth at risk.
     Champions of Caring has three components: a community-wide recognition and
 honoring program, a regional youth leadership and advocacy program for service
 and social justice, and a school-based program that supports cultures of
 caring in schools through curriculum, leadership development, after-school
 clubs and teacher training.
