The holiday season always brings added pressure for job seekers. This year is especially difficult for those struggling under the high cost of food, housing shortages and low paying jobs.
A job seeker might find employment but cannot afford…
- Transportation to get to work,
- A winter coat, work boots and vest to be on the jobsite
- Groceries and personal care items waiting for their first pay cheque or
- Childcare so they can work extra hours
When you are barely meeting your basic needs there is no room for gift giving, hosting celebrations or travelling to loved ones over the holidays.
You can help relieve some of these pressures with a gift to Goodwill Amity’s Job Seeker Support Fund. You will give job seekers in need emergency funds for things like groceries, transit passes, steel-toe boots, a haircut or a babysitter so they can attend employment training.
The power of work can be life-changing but sometimes we need a little hand to get us there. You can lend a hand with a donation to our Job Seeker Support Fund. Please click here to donate now.
