We’re “Counting” On You!
We hope that you and your families are healthy and safe. Now more than ever we’re all holding the value of employment so dearly. The past few months were tough for all of us in many ways, but we’re so thankful for our community, people like you, who’ve rallied and cheered on our program participants through the COVID-19 pandemic.
With respect for social distancing guidelines, we chose to cancel our Annual Golf Classic, scheduled for June 22nd. Instead, we’re holding our First “Fore Ways of Giving” campaign the week of Monday, June 22nd through Friday, June 26th. Everyone can join-whether you’re a golfer or not! In the spirit of golf, we’re asking you to take a “swing” at helping Employment Horizons and the people served by our incredible staff, get a jump start back to their jobs.
Let’s make this fun!! Here are a few suggestions about ways that you can make a difference and impact someone’s life:
1) Tell your neighbors, friends, and family about the work we do and the people we support! Facilitate an introduction to a company that is hiring or one that can use our fulfillment center (packaging/assembly) or janitorial services.
2) Spend some time with us! Help prepare our job seekers through interviewing practice or resume writing (virtual capabilities available)-Take a tour later this year.
3) Have a great time participating in our events and fundraising initiatives. We’ve got something for
everyone! Attend as a guest, volunteer to help, or become a sponsor. Visit the event page of our website for more information.
4) Make a donation to Employment Horizons. Help extend our reach to people who lost jobs during the pandemic and jump start our programs and services for people with disabilities.
Visit our website www.ehorizons.org. You can also use the enclosed envelope. Please consider giving in the amount that feel led to donate. We value and need your help!
Employment Horizons was hit hard by the closure caused by the pandemic. Most of our services to businesses had no choice but to hit the pause button putting a stop to significant sources of our revenue. This revenue keeps us going so our programs and services reach those in need. So, through the ways mentioned above, or in a special way that you would like, consider giving during this unique time. We need and are grateful for your help now, more than ever!
Contact us directly to let us know how you’d like to participate in our “Fore Ways of Giving” campaign. You can also reach out to Danielle Baird, Media and Donor Specialist, to discuss how you’d like to help. (firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-538-8822, ext. 255)
The Staff and Program Participants of Employment Horizons say, “Thank you!”.
