FULTON, NY – Youth in the Fulton School Mentoring Program were recently treated to lunch from the Jungle CafÃ© at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, compliments of Fulton Savings Bank.
Fulton Savings Bank vice president/marketing and human resources Nancy Kush Ellis and senior vice president/controller Wendy Tetro serve as mentors in the program and recently participated in the zoo field trip.
Kush Ellis, who has been involved in the program for almost a year, will reach her one-year match anniversary in November.
Tetro has been involved with the program since fall of 2006 and has given the program almost 100 hours of volunteer time.
She currently is meeting with a youth from Volney and they will celebrate their one-year match anniversary in October.
Special thanks to Fulton Savings Bank for their wonderful support!
