Dow Chemical Employees CU managers help the homeless
LANSING, Mich. (7/27/11)--Sixteen management team members of the Dow Chemical Employees’ CU (DCECU), Midland, Mich., recently volunteered at the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission, a Bay City shelter for the homeless. The team spent five hours cleaning, painting, performing yard work and assembling hygiene kits (Michigan Credit Union League Michigan Monitor July 25). “Many assume that homelessness only affects people in metropolitan areas, such as New York City and Detroit, but it can happen to anyone,” said Dennis Hanson, Dow Chemical Employees’ CU president/CEO. “In addition to a corporate contribution, we worked together to help make the mission a better place for the men, women and children who are affected by homelessness in our community.” In 2010, Good Samaritan Rescue Mission had an average of 50 residents per day. The mission also provided more than 43,000 meals to those in need. “It was a very humbling experience,” said Barb Ostroski-Enos, DCECU marketing director. “You don’t realize how privileged you are until you meet people who have nothing. It felt amazing to give back to the community.”
