Interfaith Outreach Tackles Hunger by Helping People Find Jobs
Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners in Plymouth is working to end hunger by helping people find good jobs.
The nonprofit is calling all hiring managers, industry leaders and community connectors to join in on a virtual event called Build the Network. Participants will learn how the pandemic has impacted job seekers and how they can help crate networks to bridge the right people to the right jobs.
“We saw unemployment surge 85 percent this year due to COVID-19,” said Liz Erstad-Hicks, the community engagement director. “A lot of community members are looking for work. They’re looking for quality jobs that can really pay a living wage. We know we have great employers in our community who are looking for talented local neighbors to fill those needs. And we can be that bridge.”
The Zoom event is on April 14th and runs from 12-12:45 p.m. Build the Network is part of Interfaith Outreach’s Prevent Hunger campaign.
