TU Thomasville Social Work students help Rescue Mission Ministries

A group of students in Thomas University’s Social Work program in Thomasville decided to help out a local food bank and soup kitchen as part of their senior project.

The students assisted Rescue Mission Ministries in Thomasville, which has been led by Sister Erlean Douglas for many years. When Douglas decided to open a larger kitchen in a new location to help the homeless and hungry in Thomasville, she realized that she needed more help. The TU Social Work students decided to offer their assistance in the effort.

The Social Work students helped Douglas move furniture and other items out of the front room of the new location. The students volunteered alongside others from Pottyman Port-O-Let Rentals, Salvation Army, Thomasville Police Department, Thomasville Fire Department and Hands on Thomas County.

Along with efforts to relocate furniture and other items, as well as cleaning the facilities, the TU Social Work students also created a fundraising effort to help fund the installation of doors required for the opening of the soup kitchen. Students raised more than $300 in the effort.
