SenSource Lends a Helping Hand at the Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley

The Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley houses on average 120 peopleClean each night, they house men, women and children. On Wednesday, February 18th, the SenSource team volunteered their time during the recent subzero temperatures to help clean their dining facilities, prepare meals and serve lunch for those in need. It is said that as many as 30 million people go hungry in the U.S. every day and nearly a million individuals are homeless on any given night. The Rescue Mission aims to help all of those in need. The Mission is not government funded. They survive solely on the generosity of the community either through donations or through volunteered time and help. Providing food, clothing and shelter is only the beginning of what the Mission has to offer. They are equipped to help individuals make a sustainable transition when they leave through education, counseling and mentorship. The Mission enables hundreds of people each year to get back on their feet and become productive members of society again. MealsServing three meals a day, every day, the Mission is always in need of volunteers either helping to serve those meals or in the warehouse. They are always taking donations as well, either monetary or physical goods such as canned goods, personal hygiene items, clothing and furniture. This year SenSource has decided to spend their volunteer hours with the community solely with the Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley. By doing this we’re hoping to build a closer relationship with the Mission and believe strongly in their pursuit to not only help those in need through donations and serving meals but also teach them and give them the tools they need to succeed on their own.
