Help us sponsor one trainee through our Community Jobs Training Program
Raffle @ The RE Store is here! Come by The RE Store the entire month of June to purchase raffle tickets and be entered to win one of eight incredible prize packs. Tickets are sold in-store and winners will be selected July 5.
Our goal by selling raffle tickets is to raise $5000; the cost to sponsor one trainee through our Community Jobs Training Program. This Program provides paid, on-site job training for economically displaced members of our community. Trainees include homeless youth, single parents, military veterans, recently incarcerated individuals, and adults with disabilities. Each and every trainee contributes to the reuse community at The RE Store and we are so grateful that we get to work with them!
Since 2013, over 1,000 individuals have participated in our CJTP, which amounts to over 35,000 hours of job training and trial work experiences. With your help, we can increase these numbers and get more folks employment opportunities! Support this program with Raffle @ The RE Store and purchase a raffle ticket in-store.
