Please join the administration and Board of RSI in congratulating Jean Bennett, this year's recipient of the Sister Jeanne Frank Award, given through the WNY Homeless Coalition!!! Sister Jeanne, was a tireless advocate for the homeless and poor in WNY and founder of the St Vincent DePaul Dining Room.
The award....is called the "IN YOUR FACE ADVOCACY AWARD"!! Since Jean has joined RSI, she certainly has not only become a humble, dedicated advocate, but is certainly "in the face" of the challenges and obstacles facing our homeless, needy brothers and sisters of this community!!!
As Sister Jeanne Frank said...."remember, you are serving your equals. Don't put a plate in front of them without putting yourself there as well."
Jean is ALWAYS at the table!!!
Please congratulation Ms Bennett
