Our annual Good Works meeting took place on May 14th where we heard about the program and mission of Erie City Mission's Urban University from RoseMarie Lackey. RoseMarie Lackey has served at the Erie City Mission since 2007, first coming on board as their Volunteer Coordinator. She initiated the resurgence of both women and children’s ministries and now serves solely as the Director of Youth Ministries.
The Urban University Youth Program is comprised of summer workshops, leadership development, service learning, and after school programs that are focused on career exploration, academic enrichment, intentional mentorship and faith formation for urban middle school students (6th-8th grade).
Presque Isle Society of CPCU members graciously donated a total of $1,215 to support Urban University. A check was presented from our chapter on July 18th, 2019 with both mentors and students in the Culinary Arts program participating.
A big THANK YOU to all CPCUs who donated and/or helped to organize this event to support such a worthy cause!
