PHILADELPHIA — It certainly is the season for giving.

Former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels and his wife, Heidi, donated their Missouri home to a non-profit organization, WPVI reports.


The Hamels Foundation announced on their website that Cole and Heidi gifted their 32,000 square foot home, just outside Branson Missouri, to Camp Barnabas, a non-profit that works with individuals with special needs and chronic illnesses.

“Seeing the faces, hearing the laughter, reading the stories of the kids they serve; there is truly nothing like it,” Cole said in a statement. “Barnabas makes dreams come true, and we felt called to help them in a big way.”


The home had previously been on the market for $9.75 million and was completed in 2016, according to


“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. “We have no doubt that this gift will allow us to do just that.”

Over the past 24 years, Barnabas has provided life-changing experiences to more than 75,000 campers and missionaries according to the Hamels Foundation.
