Pay It Forward means working with the local community to help find jobs for unemployed workers in our community so they can earn a paycheck and help support their families during this season.
Pittsburgh, Penn. (PRWEB) November 09, 2013
Three Express Employment Professionals offices in Pittsburgh are joining together to pay it forward this holiday season by putting an additional 200 people to work. To reach this goal, Express is partnering with job seekers and businesses around Pittsburgh. The Pay It Forward Hiring Drive will take place Nov. 15 through Dec. 29, and those looking for temporary or full time work are encouraged to contact any Pittsburgh Express office.
Express franchisees Karen Mokwa, Deb Gray and Gary Schwartz are taking advantage of the Express Pay It Forward Hiring Drive by teaming with Make-A-Wish® to change lives and put people to work this year. For every new associate placed into work, Express offices in Pittsburgh will donate $25 to Make-A-Wish®. The group’s goal is to raise a total of $3,900, enough to grant a wish for one child in the Pittsburgh community.
By joining Express in this hiring effort, Express associates will have the opportunity to find gainful employment this holiday season. And with the added partnership with Make-A-Wish®, associates will also help Make-A-Wish® change the life of a child in the Pittsburgh community.
“To us, Pay It Forward means working with the local community to help find jobs for unemployed workers in our community so they can earn a paycheck and help support their families this season,” said Amy Zee, Pittsburgh based corporate developer for Express. “Our vision is to lock arms with job seekers in Pittsburgh to bring hope to local families for the holidays, grant a wish for a special child and help local businesses find quality workers.”
