On Tuesday, October 6, 2015 at 4:00 p.m., The Rescue Mission will dedicate its new Learning Center. The Learning Center, housed at the Mission’s 301 W. Superior Street location, was established thanks to a generous gift from Indiana Michigan Power, on behalf of the AEP Foundation.
The Learning Center will help men in The Rescue Mission’s Short Term Program obtain an education, gain job skills, find employment, secure housing, and become productive members of the community.
“I’m proud to represent the American Electric Power Foundation to support an organization that offers services to men which cultivate a sense of pride and confidence within them as they focus on entering the workforce and securing housing for themselves and their families,” says Paul Chodak III, Indiana Michigan Power President and Chief Operating Officer.
The media is invited to attend. For more information, please contact Richard Cummins, Executive VP of Operations at 260.426.7357 ext. 138, or via e-mail at richard.
