Pass It Forward Campaign Raises Funds to put Metro Detroiters Back to Work
GalaxE.Solutions has joined Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit to raise funds to help unemployed workers get back on the job. The program – “Dollars For Jobs – Pass It Forward” – encourages community giving to provide training and employment opportunities for Metro Detroiters who need jobs. The campaign runs Sunday, September 9 through Sunday, September 30 and features envelopes that can be filled with dollar bills and passed from person to person until reaching 25 people. For as little as a $1 donation, anyone can contribute to fighting unemployment in Southeast Michigan.
“GalaxE remains committed to creating jobs in metro Detroit, including through our partnerships with Goodwill,” said Tim Bryan, GalaxE.Solutions CEO. “From ‘Outsource to Detroit’ to ‘Pass It Forward’ we are proud to work hand-in-hand to put individuals back to work.”
Once an envelope contains $25 or more, it may be returned to one of the 43 participating Biggby Coffee locations, where returning the envelope earns a special discount offer. The “Dollars for Jobs – Pass It Forward” funds are used to grow a range of employment education and training programs and to support new job opportunities that help real people earn real jobs throughout Metro Detroit. The $25 in each envelope represents the approximate cost for Goodwill Industries to provide one day of job preparedness training and other support to an unemployed Metro Detroit resident.
GalaxE joins the Detroit Lions Charities, Quicken Loans, Biggby Coffee and the Detroit Newspaper Partnership as sponsors and partners in the Dollars For Jobs Pass It Forward campaign. Detroit Lions Wide Receiver Nate Burleson is the spokesperson for the campaign.
Metro Detroiters interested in supporting the “Dollars for Jobs – Pass It Forward” campaign can download an envelope or make a financial contribution directly and at http://www.dollarsforjobs.org.
