As part of the 2019 Enmarket Encourage Health Education Series, Enmarket, along with Healthy Savannah, volunteered with and donated $1,000 to Union Mission’s Ben and Bettye Barnes Center, which provides permanent supportive housing for single women living with disabilities.
Program tenants are supported by such services as case management and community resource referrals.
“Our employees are always eager to give back to the community, and these volunteer days, which are new to the Encourage Health Series, have proven to be successful on all sides,” said Enmarket President Brett Giesick. “We appreciate the opportunity to learn about this organization and its mission. From this experience, our hope is that our team members will want to get even more involved.”
Union Mission tackles the major issue of homelessness in our area in a number of different ways, including operating an emergency shelter, providing permanent supportive housing, and addressing root causes of homelessness with specialized services in mental health counseling and employment training programs.
Savannah, Ga.-based Enmarket operates 124 locations throughout Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
