ESU member Dottie Booher and Rescue Mission speaker Carolyn Hendrickson
ESU's November luncheon meeting featured Carolyn Hendrickson, the Senior Philanthropy Officer for the Rescue Mssion Alliance. Ms. Hendrickson spoke about the history, mission, and programs of the Rescue Mission, a local organization serving local citizens in need. It provides meals (over 700 people a day are served); housing (both temporary and permanent shelter); and educational programs. Its Thrifty Shopper stores provided 100,000 articles of clothing to families in need last year, while also generating 60% of the Rescue Mission's annual budget from sales to the public and serving as the #1 recycler in Onondaga County.
The ESU celebrates English as a shared language to foster global understanding and good will by providing educational and cultural opportunities for students, educators, and members.
