Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CHICAGO - Feb 19, 2019 - When tragedy strikes, positive action can relieve grief. The Doyle family launched the Sheilah A. Doyle Foundation (SAD) in honor of their mother, a victim of homicide. This year marks the 25th anniversary of her death. To date, 150 children have attended Camp Sheilah, the foundation’s free, annual bereavement camp, and over 50 scholarships have been given to college students who have lost a parent or sibling to homicide. The organization raises $50,000 each year.
“We teach kids how to turn tragedy to triumph by giving them coping skills, camps and scholarships,” said Executive Director Kevin Doyle.
