Cole Hamels donates brand new, $9 million mansion to non-profit

Cole Hamels donates brand new, $9 million mansion to non-profit”

The Branson, Missouri, estate will be given to Camp Barnabas, a nonprofit Christian organization headquartered in the southwestern part of the state, KXAS reported.

The camp, located on Table Rock Lake, has been used by over 75,000 campers and missionaries to camp over the last 24 years.

Camp Barnabas has two locations in the Ozarks and notes in its values that "Christ comes first always" and staffers "point people to Christ in everything we do".

The house, which is reportedly worth close to $10 million, was meant to be the Hamels' permanent home when he was pitching for the Phillies.

"There are tons of fantastic charities in Southwest Missouri".

"Seeing the faces, hearing the laughter, reading the stories of the kids they serve; there is truly nothing like it", Hamels said. The Hamels began construction on the lavish home in 2012 but put it on the market back in August since they now live in Texas.

"We love that Barnabas sees the bigger picture", Hamels said. The couple had meant to sell the mansion earlier this year but have chose to donate it and the over 100 acres of land on which it sits to Camp Barnabas, a nonprofit organization that provides one-of-a-kind experiences to children with special needs or chronic illnesses and their siblings.

"Our mission is to change lives through disability ministry, and we've been strategically looking for ways to expand our ministry outside of a summer camp", says Jason Brawner, CEO.

Needless to say, this an awesome gesture on the part of the Hamels family, and there's no doubt that their gift will make a huge difference in the lives of these children.
