SEATTLE, Dec. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — LATCareers.com reviews hundreds of toy requests from families each December as part of their Annual Toy Drive to decide which families will benefit from the toys the most. This year is the 15th year LATCareers.com has partnered with their clients nationwide to provide toys for children of families in need.
LATCareers.com has been leading the Puerto Rican Recruitment Effort for those displaced by the Hurricane this year in Puerto Rico to find jobs on the mainland. LATCareers.com has assisted more than 3,700 Puerto Ricans with finding jobs in just the past sixty days. This included providing job search assistance, assistance with finding temporary housing and assistance with travel to interview with employers. Given the success of the viral YouTube video that LATCareers.com produced regarding the Puerto Rico hurricane, it has received nearly 20,000 views. Puerto Ricans have been visiting the LATCareers.com website and searching jobs and posting their resume in overwhelming numbers.
One of the families receiving toys is the Rodriguez family of Ponce, Puerto Rico. They are receiving toys donated by LATCareers.com and its sponsors. Carmen Rodriquez states, “We did not know where to turn as our family had lost everything in the hurricane. We decided to make a life changing decision to come to New York City to stay with some relatives. With little money and no jobs my husband and I moved our three kids. We saw the video posted about the hurricane employment relief with LATCareers.com and contacted them. We were able to both find jobs within less than a month and have enrolled our kids in elementary school and are now working. We also are receiving toys for our kids which will make a big difference this holiday as we try to rebuild our lives here in New York. Thank you to the LATCareers.com team for all your help and for making the holiday season now bright for our family.”
Rubicela Acosta, CEO of LATCareers.com, states, “We are proud this year again to partner with our sponsors to provide happiness in the form of toys to those families who have been displaced by this life changing event. Our team has been working tirelessly for the past months to help each career seeker find employment. We would like to thank our sponsors for not only providing employment for those in need but for supporting us for our 15th year of providing toys for those families in need as part of our Annual Holiday Toy Drive.”
