Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit is launching a radio campaign this week in a bid to boost funds for programs helping more Metro Detroiters find jobs.
Between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. Friday, "Broadcasting for Jobs" will be featured on 11 area stations.
To help more local residents find jobs through education, training and career services, listeners interested in donating will be asked to call (866) 964-GIVE, go to http://www.goodwilldetroit.org/ or visit the stations' Web sites.
" 'Broadcasting for Jobs' is a one-of-a-kind way for Goodwill Industries to reach a large number of Metro Detroiters from all parts of town and let them know they can help their unemployed friends and neighbors find work," Lorna G. Utley, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit, said in a statement. "We believe it's the first one-day campaign of this magnitude in southeast Michigan or anywhere else."
In the past two years, Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit has helped find jobs for 2,500 people in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties and provided education, training and career assistance to thousands more, officials said.
The stations that will feature "Broadcasting for Jobs" are WCSX-FM (94.7), WDVD-FM (96.3), WJR-AM (760), WMGC-FM (105.1), WMXD-FM (92.3), WNIC-FM (100.3), WOMC-FM (104.3), WRIF-FM (101.1), WWJ-AM (950), WXYT-FM (97.1) and WYCD-FM (99.5).
