Friday, April 29, 2016
(…or another day that’s convenient for you!)

We have 24 nonprofits in the Capital Region registered for “PR for a Day,” and we need more volunteers!

Sign up by filling out our volunteer registration form.

If you aren’t available on Friday, April 29, 2016, we can still pair you with a nonprofit, and you can coordinate a volunteer day and time that works better for you. Just indicate you’re unavailable on April 29 with your contact information in the volunteer registration form.

Since the majority of these organizations are lacking PR and marketing expertise and resources, this is an opportunity for you to really make a difference. Please consider signing up for the event.

If you have any questions, please contact Liz Greenaway and Kristie Byrum, Public Service Committee Co-Chairs.

About PR for a Day

You are invited to join your fellow PR and marketing professionals in the Capital Region to give back to the community by participating in the second annual “PRSA PR for a Day.” The Central Pennsylvania Chapter is excited to announce the details for this initiative, which benefits the many communities in which we work.

On Friday, April 29, 2016, we, as PR and marketing professionals, will have a unique opportunity to donate our time, talent and experience to local nonprofits who need our help in advancing their mission in the community.

PR and marketing professionals who volunteer to be a part of “PR for a Day” will be partnered with nonprofits that have expressed interest in having a PR and marketing professional work with them for a day. The majority of these organizations are lacking PR and marketing expertise and resources.

While we encourage everyone to donate one full day, we understand, as PR and marketing professionals, our schedules are not always flexible. You ultimately decide the number of hours you would like to donate, however, you are encouraged to allocate at least a half day, in-house, for the nonprofit.

Prior to the day of the event, you would be provided with background information on the nonprofit you would be working with, including their projects, challenges and contact information, in order to maximize your time spent on-site.

If you are interested in participating in PR for a Day, please fill out our call for volunteers registration form, so that we can partner you with a nonprofit that matches your area of expertise and location. We will be in touch with more details in the coming weeks.
