“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” -Winston Churchill Giving back to our community is engraved into the structure, culture and mission of SenSource. We are proud to call Youngstown home and are honored for the opportunities of involvement with local non-profit organizations. This week wrapped up our second corporate volunteer project, coordinated through HandsOn Volunteer Network of the Valley (HOVN) with the Ursuline Sisters HIV/AIDS Ministry. The Ursuline Sisters provide numerous resources for the community including support groups for those infected or affected by HIV/AIDS, dinners and social events, food pantries and children and family support services. Our project focused on the children support services’ facility where students, kindergarten to seniors, are provided tutoring, mentoring, recreational outings and a complete summer program. A group of SenSource employees spent the day stuffing backpacks with donated school supplies and prepping the facility inside and out for the upcoming school year. “What a great way to spend the day. Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something. It was truly the best part of my day yesterday.” Kevin Stefko, Vice President of SenSource. “We had a great time working together and getting to know each other… It was a pleasure spending time with the very caring and very hardworking team members from SenSource.” Bernie Appugliese, Ursuline Sisters HIV/AIDS Ministry Child Advocate. In May, we began our new corporate volunteer program for SenSource employees to take the workday and volunteer with a non-profit organization of choice. Each quarter provides a new opportunity. Our first project was also coordinated through HOVN providing assistance to a new home construction project with Habitat for Humanity of Mahoning County.
