)-- TBEF announced today that December 10th will be their first annual Day of Giving, a day for these in-transition executives to give back to the local community. This year’s recipients represent some the best charities that the Bay has to offer. The organizer of this effort, Dennis Fredrickson said, “The TBEF is a great organization of Tampa executives who are always looking for ways to improve the community. Helping charities is an important part of our professional careers.”
This year the TBEF volunteers will assist with specific projects for the following organizations:
Phoenix House needs assistance with their Database
CDC of Tampa needs help with a Resume Workshop
Helping Hand Day Nursery needs Web Design assistance
Sulphur Springs Resource Center needs assistance with their “Market Yourself” Workshop, as well as, Financial Counseling and Coaching for Individuals
James Jackson of the Sulphur Springs Resource Center was thankful for the offer of assistance. The TBEF volunteers, will advise the Sulphur Springs Resource Center clients by providing one-on-one financial coaching sessions with individuals regarding household budgets, financial planning, and savings. In addition, a “Market Yourself” workshop will provide an overview of marketing oneself to prospective employers. This will provide assistance with interviewing tips, how-to’s for job fairs and networking. “Dennis contacted me and asked how the TBEF could help. We have limited resources, but with their help, we can improve our service to our client base, especially during this difficult holiday season,” said Jackson.
Participation in the first annual Day of Giving “is a great opportunity for our members to make a positive impact on the community. I look forward to many years of continued volunteerism from the TBEF members,” said Bill Phelps, TBEF president.
