Local staffing company Apollo Staffing is beginning a company-wide fundraiser to assist the Wounded Warrior Project.
Beginning on Memorial Day and continuing for 30 days, Apollo will be donating $1 to the Wounded Warrior Project for every new like their "Facebook" site receives, and selling T-shirts for $10 a piece, with all proceeds going to the Wounded Warriors Project.
"Using social media will allow potential job candidates to know about job offerings in their area quickly so we can get them to work within hours instead of days," said Jamie Cummings, general manager of Apollo Staffing.
Wounded Warriors is a charitable organization that honors and empowers soldiers who injured while serving on or after 9/11. The group offers a variety of programs and services with every type of injury from the physical to the invisible signs of war.
Apollo Staffing has offices in Covington, Cartersville and Savannah.
"We wanted to do something special for Memorial Day. Those individuals chose to defend our country, some paid the ultimate price, others came home with permanent injury, that's why we honor them," said Keith Davis, owner of Apollo Staffing.
