FOX31 Interview | Day of Caring - Rob Brazell

Return to Work Day of Caring Recruiting Event

FOX 31 Morning News (Denver, CO), August 25, 2020

Return 2 Work‘s Day Of Caring is August 28th, so sign up now to match-up ahead of time, and radially improve positive outcomes—lasting placements. That way, Day of Caring will be more about interviews than dropping off resumes.

Day Of Caring incorporates lessons learned from their large-scale Military and Veterans Employment Expos.  At Day Of Caring, Job Seekers receive similar intensive training prior to the hiring event, but they’ve enabled them to do it at home and at more convenient times.

Return 2 Work will continue providing weekly workshops after Day Of Caring to prepare applicants for interviews.  And monthly heartbeat events to introduce them to employers, mentors, and STEM interns.

Day of Caring 2020

Day of Caring 2020

Over the years, we’ve participated in many of United Way’s Day of Caring events. It’s a tradition.

This year’s event on August 28th will be entirely online because of COVID-19. But we’re no strangers to technology.

THEN:

The National Guard worked to rescue an entire Colorado town of about 1,600 people on Friday, a day after they were cut off by raging floodwaters that have killed at least three people, washed out dams and turned roads into rivers across the state.

United Way canceled Day Of Caring in 2013 due to once-in-a-century floods.  But R2W stayed on course on the internet. While the National Guard airlifted R2W volunteers and respected citizens to safety, others were able to carry on online.

It was one of our most impactful events.

NOW:

Thanks to magnanimous contributions from Safeway Foundation, StaffCV, Hurricane Electric, Microsoft, Greater Faith Community Church, Christian Science, and many others, we are hosting a fun and innovative job fair for 1,000 to 2,000 job seekers, 100-200 employers, and 100-200 volunteer mentors.

Please sign up now so we have a little time to use our donated technologies to match up everyone.  We have demonstrated the ability to radically improve positive outcomes at previous events this way.  That way, on August 28th, the online event will be more about job interviews and sage advice from caring mentors than dropping off resumes.

Thank you  for your support. It was gratifying to see the energy around the program and outpouring of community engagement. It was a great way to highlight our mission with Target guests.

We are excited to share that guests at Target stores cast 14,694 votes to Project Return To Work, Inc., awarding Target funds in the amount of $2,324.12 to our organization. Most importantly, you voted for our mission and its impact on our community. Full results are now posted for members of Target Circle at https://circle.target.com/cr/results.

While the GoodCoin Foundation helped facilitate the process and will be issuing the checks, the funds came from Target. As a company, Target works to empower communities to thrive and grow and is proud to have been able to support you in this campaign. Should you wish to acknowledge them, please email partners@goodcoinfoundation.org.

Community Leaders – Dale & Diane Tinline

By Rob Ray Brazell

Dale and Diane have been Fran Nixon’s, R2W Missions Operations Manager (MOM’s) extraordinary neighbors for decades.  Diane is a property manager who introduced us to Peter Cornell’s daughter, Amy, last year who in turn helped us demonstrate the R2W House concept in Florida.  Diane has also helped MOM with an array of chores over the years — one heck of a friend.

Dale is a Marine in the Blue Angels (retired) and a former logistics expert in the home renovation industry.

He frequently mowed MOM’s lawn and trimmer her trees (not just one or two!), and completed several home improvements for her out of the kindness of his heart.  He’s kept a watchful eye over MOM’s property for a long time and connected her electricity to their power generator after Hurricane Charley devastated the entire community.  MOM could not have survived in the sweltering heat otherwise.  Like Don Ellis and Karen Bordner in Colorado, Dale and Diane renew my faith in humanity.  As my father would say (WWII Marine), “They’re a rare breed,” and I am deeply grateful.

Good neighbors = community leaders.

Dale and Diane Tinline
