Florida Telco Credit Union has finished their first Helping People Every Day campaign. Janet Kimmell has won a $750 donation in her name to the Jacksonville Christian Women’s Job Corp. During a one week voting period on Florida Telco’s social network, the JCWJC received the highest voter support.
The JCWJC is a local community project, completely funded by private donations. “We provide women in need with skills and materials they need for life and employment,” says Kimmell, “we reach out to help others in our community and it’s nice to see that organizations like Florida Telco get that and are doing their part as well.”
The JCWJC hosts six sessions per year for women in need. During these five week sessions participants are given counseling about professional life and the skills they will need to enter the workforce and personality assessment to help them choose a career. Volunteers at JCWJC help participants build their resume, prepare for job interviews and provide them with a nice interview wardrobe. All of this is done in a Christian environment where the women can also attend bible study and find a fellowship with others in their situation.
“We strive to provide our community with one to one personal service to meet all aspects of their financial needs,” said Cindy Breslin, Florida Telco VP. “We’re proud to support an organization like JCWJC who shares our dedication to the Jacksonville community.”
The JCWJC plans to use the award to help provide essential needs for the program. They hope to purchase new software applications for skills building, bus tokens to assist participants with transportation to the sessions and contribute to purchasing interview wardrobes.
