What can you do when a friend or family member comes home with a pink slip?
This past weekend The New York Times ran a wonderful piece chock-full of advice on how those of us with jobs can offer support and job-search assistance to our peers without. Networking, playdates, and even dinner-party menus are all on the list.
Of course I'd also point out that Modest Needs still offers support to the newly unemployed via our Bridge grants. If you know someone struggling to make ends meet while they're out pounding the pavement for a new job, I hope you'll encourage that person to learn more.
