Monsanto hears about helping kids
Monsanto employees gathered for their 2015 United Way campaign kickoff where Rossbrook House executive director Phil Chiappetta spoke about how their support helps create a better future for Winnipeg kids.
A United Way-supported neighbourhood drop-in centre, Rossbrook House was founded in 1976 by Sister Geraldine MacNamara and some inner city youth with a simple mission: “No child who does not want to be alone, should ever have to be.”
Phil spoke about how youth at Rossbrook can grow from young and sometimes troubled kids into leaders and mentors of other kids who in turn become the next generation of leaders. It’s a true cycle of positive mentorship creating better futures!
About 75 Monsanto employees enjoyed BBQ and deserts at the kickoff last Friday. United Way sponsored executive Derek Resch said everyone was “energized and enthusiastic.”
“It was a warm day with a warm crowd.”
Thank you for making a difference, Monsanto!
