Jacob's Ladder Launches Holiday Appeal for USB Flash Drives

Jacob's Ladder Job Center, Inc. (Jacob's Ladder) is holding a 'USB-
Drive' campaign for the students in their month-long job-readiness

From Nov. 28-Dec. 19, Jacob's Ladder is collecting donated new and
unused USB flash drives (minimum of 256MB or greater) at both of its
locations Mondays through Fridays between 9:00AM-4:00PM: The Plaza
(2304 The Plaza, Charlotte, N.C. 28205) and Jacob's Ladder West
(located at the Center for Employment Services at 2201 Caronia Street,
Charlotte, N.C. 28208). For questions, contact Jacob's Ladder at

"Unfortunately, we are no longer able to provide flash drives to our
students, so we would appreciate any donations we receive from the
public. Flash drives are an essential tool for our clients who often
rely on our computer labs for computer access to create and update
their resume, complete applications and apply for jobs," said Margo
Scurry, the technology instructor at Jacob's Ladder. "They enable our
clients to keep documents that are accessible and available on
standard technology that supports their learning."
