It is time again to share the LOVE and participate in the Advance Memphis Supply Drive! Last year, generous supporters helped us raise almost $5,000 in supplies and testing fees.
Each year 100+ Advance Memphis participants make choices and take steps to move forward with their educational and professional goals, such as:
- Completing the Jobs for Life soft-skills job training class and going to work.
- Learning important personal finance tools and opening a matched savings account to purchase a car.
- Persevering to earn their high school equivalency, gaining access to better jobs and further education via college.
While supplies may not seem like that big of deal, they are a necessity to our programs, and the cost of them can add up quickly. The Supply Drive is an easy way to contribute in a meaningful, tangible way! We are looking for Team Leads to help make the Drive happen. This can be done by emailing friends and gathering supplies, putting some flyers (which we will provide) on the wall in a break room or a Sunday school room, or in any way that your creativity may lead you. The supplies we’re looking for are: Kleenex, Sticky notes, Ballpoint pens, Reams of copy paper, White board markers and erasers, and Checks to cover GED/HSE testing fees. If you would like to be a Team Lead for the Drive or want more information, contact Kate.
