With his recent donation of body wash and lotion samples to the Open Door Mission, Joel Schlessinger helped local families learn about proper skin care. The donated products were handed out during a health fair sponsored by Clarkson College nursing students. During the event, these students educated men, women and children on proper skin care, performed health screenings and provided skin assessments. Each participant received free samples to help them care for their skin.
The Open Door Mission provides life-changing programs for the homeless and needy, an effort Joel Schlessinger supports.
Founded in 1954, the Open Door Mission is committed to “breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty.” Its campus offers 816 shelter beds and serves more than 2,000 meals each day to men, women and children. With help from donations like Joel Schlessinger’s, the organization continues to provide these basic needs as well as long-term solutions to help people living in poverty. Each life-changing program prepares participants with the necessary tools to help them become self-sufficient members of the community.
