HOSEA Feed the Hungry and Homeless Partners With Georgia Department of Labor To Host Their 5th Annual "Labor Of Love" Event

This event is designed to energize the city and reignite citizens exposing them to potential employment opportunities

Atlanta, GA / ACCESSWIRE / August 28, 2014 / Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless (HFTH) will partner with Meet College Park, and the North Metro Career Center of the Georgia Department of Labor to host the 5th annual Labor of Love. This event has successfully given Atlanta citizens exposure to great job prospects and the opportunity to get back to work. This year's event will take place on Saturday, September 6, 2014 from 10am to 1pm at the Georgia International Convention Center, 2000 Convention Center Concourse, Atlanta GA, 30337.

Labor of Love was created to reclaim some of the initial promise of Labor Day, a celebration of American labor and an inspiration that there is hope for American citizens. During the event, individuals will have access to job opportunities, they will also sharpen their job interviewing skills and job counselors will be on-site critiquing resumes.

"So much has happened in our society and people are polarizing themselves," says Afemo Omilami, Chief Operating Officer, Hosea Feed the Hungry, "Atlantans are looking for jobs, ways to sustain and build, they are not looking for a hand out they are looking for a hand up."

Americans are still suffering disproportionately in the current financial crisis, according to the Department of Labor's July report, unemployment still hovers around 6.2 percent nationally. In Georgia, the unemployment rate sits at 7.8 percent. Labor of Love was designed to meet the basic employment needs of so many.


The Labor of Love event will also have traditional HFTH activities including food and clothing distribution, medical screenings and more. This event is FREE and open to the public. Special thanks to our sponsor The Law Offices of Kanner and Pintaluga, Convoy of Hope and Omilami Productions for supporting this year's event. For more information about the event, please call Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless at (404) 755-3353.
