Why I Give Wednesday: MEDA November 2015 Volunteer of the Month Rosie Madsen

1904-12012015_Dev-Why-I-Give-Wednesday-Rosie-Madsen-Image_blog_640x295pxTo celebrate this season of giving and thankfulness, every Wednesday we will showcase staff, Board members, volunteers and clients telling what this Mission District, San Francisco nonprofit brings to their lives.

It really upsets me to know that the people who have created such a wonderful community here in the Mission are being forced from their homes. The displacement that is occurring is awful for the individuals and families affected, and it is also a great loss for San Francisco as a whole. I am so glad that MEDA is fighting for the Mission community, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this work.

“I have enjoyed getting to know the kind and hardworking staff. Everyone has been welcoming and encouraging. Also, when I walk through the Mission, I am proud to know that I am doing my small part to help preserve this neighborhood.

“I love to learn about other people’s cultures and beliefs. I hope to one day work for an organization that promotes cultural and religious education and tolerance.”
