Chloe Capofarri Awarded for Volunteer Efforts

Long Beach High School junior Chloe Capofarri received a Prudential Volunteer Service Award for giving time to serve her community and country. She has volunteered in both the school district and local region to make a difference in others’ lives.

When Chloe was in the middle school, she volunteered in a special education classroom during her gym and lunch periods. As a high school student, she continued to pay it forward by joining the junior fire department in Point Lookout, and now serves as Sergeant in Arms of all the junior fire departments in Nassau County. She attends drills and monthly meetings, and helps to plan fundraising events.

The award is sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals. “The recipients of these awards demonstrate that young people across America are making remarkable contributions to the health and vitality of their communities,” said John Strangfeld, chairman and CEO of Prudential Finacial. “By recognizing these students and placing a spotlight on their volunteer activities, we hope to motivate others to consider how they can also contribute to their community.”

Chloe plans to continue her career as a volunteer firefighter and also aspires to become a nurse.
