More than 20 Penn College employees imbued a staff development opportunity with a meaningful personal touch, touring the American Rescue Workers facility and assisting in a variety of holiday-themed activities. In addition to learning about the many essential services offered to the community, the group helped select and pack donated gifts for hundreds of local children and prepared handmade confections for the shelter’s meals. Prior to the visit, the college’s Human Resources Office spearheaded a stocking-stuffer collection of personal care items for the agency’s residents.
