Children with Special Needs to Get a Kick Out of Soccer Camp

FRANKLIN, Mass. -- As part of their capstone projects for the Benjamin Franklin Charter School, two local girls will host the Summer Challenger Soccer Camp, a free youth soccer camp for children with special needs.
Eighth-graders Alexa Frongillo and Alexis Katinas, both of Franklin, are pooling their efforts to complete the projects and work for a good cause. The girls saw the capstone project, a community service activity required for graduation, as a chance to use their passion to help do some good in the community.
"We're both soccer players, so we knew this would be something we were both interested in," Katinas said. "We decided to make it as a community service project because we get to work with children with special needs and they don't have many opportunities like this."
