Local News

ZANESVILLE, Ohio – Two students at Mid East Career and Technology Centers have been spending their time putting an event together to help those in need.

Organizers Kendall Morris and Cassie Snack are hosting the event through Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. The project is focused on community impact and Morris said it is to help prepare the less fortunate for job interviews.

“We’re going to have different stations. We’re going to have a cosmetology station, where they can get their haircut and get tips on how to keep up on themselves, a health station where they can get their blood pressure taken and then we’ll have a little sheet for them to fill out, we’re going to have a clothes station for them as well where they can get business clothes and what not. All different sizes and everything,” Morris said.

There will be an area with non-perishable food items available for those who attend and a table with assistance for a variety of job applications. Snack said if you are interested in attending but already have a job, you can still show up and receive advice.

“I hope they take away just knowing that there’s people out there that do think about how they are and their situations and just knowing that there’s people out there that care. I think that it’ll be for them to take away knowing different skills for the work field and for applications and that type of thing too,” Snack said.

The event will be Friday, February 22nd during soup kitchen hours at Salvation Army. If you are interested in donating business professional clothing you can head to their Facebook.
