A Voice For The Homeless
While serving as a Celanese Foundation Global Citizen Network member, I’ve been very involved with coordinating volunteer efforts between Celanese’s Florence site and the Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky (ESNKY)….
The Best Night In A Long Time
Being selected to serve on the Celanese Foundation Committee, and then joining families with the Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky (ESNKY) and having the chance to Improve the World, has been an incredible experience that I will be proud of for the rest of my life. It’s caused me to reflect on the meaning of “family.”
It has also provoked me to think about what “families” mean. It’s not just doing a one-time volunteering event, but building an ongoing relationship with those in the community who we can help. This includes those who manage this wonderful life-saving facility at ESNYK and their overnight guests. In 2016 we have extended our relationships with ESNKY by doing a bowling night, which has become more than just a fun night out, but a real opportunity to build relationships of trust.
All of the hard work and dedication that comes with being a Celanese Foundation member is so rewarding, especially when I hear volunteers share their reflections about time spent with our “Shelter Family.”
