Employment Guide Rocks For Hunger

Saturday, November 15th, Rock For Hunger is taking center stage in Downtown Orlando. With over 25 bands, an arts and crafts fair and block party - everyone of all ages, backgrounds and musical tastes will have something to Rock about.

With the increase in the unemployment rate all over the country, more and more people are becoming awfully close to losing their home, or may have lost it already. With an influx of young veterans returning to a new world after years of deployment, some have nowhere to turn. Rock For Hunger is a local Orlando organization that is doing something about this problem by providing programs and initiatives to help people end the cycle of poverty and hit the problem at its root.

Much like last year's festival, the Employment Guide is a proud sponsor of the festival and assists the organization with papers, job seeker survival guides, assistance with resume classes and holding seminars to get these individuals back on track.

Tickets for the concert are $10 in advance and $20 at the door. Chris Goyzueta, the executive director, has told us that for every dollar donated they are able to feed 4 people. Putting my math skills to the test that would mean a $10 ticket will feed 40 people at their Monday night feedings. Get your tickets here NOW!
