We care about wounded warriors and their spouses.  Please join us for Day of Caring to help us get deserving people back to work and back to life.  We are seeking volunteers who have substantial experience with databases to help post jobs in our recruitment system, and then match veterans with those jobs.

Highly qualified staff will provide a brief training session then tutor you through as many job postings as you can complete in two or three hours.   Bring your laptop if you’d like to continue volunteering from home after Day of Caring!  And please consider following up with our CALL BANK to reach out to both employers and applicants, letting them know we’ve found a match for them.

WHEN:           September 13, 2013                         9am – noon

WHERE:         Register for location Followed by a delicious BBQ and Award Ceremony at Foothills United Way

Project: Return To Work Inc. Thanks Sponsors For Support

 

Project: Return to Work, Inc. (R2W) helps wounded warriors, disabled Americans and others to find productive and fulfilling jobs.

 

“Our participation in the Day of Caring and the work we do in general would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors,” notes R2W President Rob Brazell.  We would like to give special thanks to Foothills United Way for hosting this event and recruiting 25 highly skilled volunteers —using laptops donated for the day by LeaderQUEST—who will post jobs in R2W’s recruitment system donated by StaffCV at facilities donated by Office Evolution, Your Office, and Charlotte County Justice Center.  We also want to thank ReadyTalk for donating web conferencing services enabling homebound volunteers to participate.   ReadyTalk’s in-kind support also enables volunteers to participate remotely from our offices in Florida.

 

Many volunteers will continue serving after Day of Caring to match over 7,000 active duty service members, veterans, their spouses, and disabled citizens to the best positions.  R2W will also offer proven training to help prepare applicants for interviews.  Our innovative technologies and tremendous community spirit enable us to better connect the dots between applicants and employer, achieving unprecedented positive outcomes.

 

This event is in support of Military and Veterans Employment Expos (MVEE) at www.mvee.org.
