The ties will be handed out to inmates interviewing at the 1st Annual Employment Fair on April 11 at the RJ Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego.
Alan Armijo, president of Power Partners USA, requested that Julie inform the inmates that the “high-quality, silk neckties are true Power Ties donated by professionals who wore them with a suit. Professionals who graduated from top-notch universities and have been successful in various businesses.”
Heidi Nye, publisher of Alamitos Bay Neighbors, solicited and donated 20 ties specifically for this program. "These men have served their time," Heidi says. "Now it's their time to serve their communities by becoming gainfully employed. I hope these ties help facilitate that transition."
Heidi's monthly magazine serves the affluent Long Beach neighborhoods of Naples, The Peninsula, Spinnaker Bay, Spinnaker Coves, Bay Harbour, La Rochelle, and Marina Park. For more information, please contact Heidi at 562.704.9942.
In appreciation for Heidi’s efforts, Power Partners USA will be donating new ties for those students participating in early-April mock interviews through LONG BEACH CaLL, a high school mentoring program for which Heidi has volunteered. CaLL’s Career & Internship Readiness Conference will be held Sat., April 6, 2019, 9am - 1pm at Browning High School (www.longbeachcall.org).
