DETROIT, (March 6, 2015) – Want to learn how to become a Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) customer service ambassador? How about sharing extra time with the American Red Cross, Romulus Animal Shelter, Gleaner’s Food Bank, the Detroit Institute of Arts, Charles H. Wright Museum, Karmanos Cancer Institute, Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, Ann Arbor and Detroit Convention and Visitor bureaus, DTW Freedom Center or other organizations that have a need — and you may have interest in or a calling for?
On Friday, March 13th from 10:00 a.m. until noon, Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) will be hosting a first-of-its-kind volunteer recruitment fair to provide information on how individuals with a little extra time can find a worthwhile passion they enjoy, and help give back to their community. The recruitment fair will be held at Detroit Metropolitan Airport’s NOMADS building, 10100 Middlebelt Road, Romulus, MI 48174.
“We have a strong history of great partnerships here,” said Airport Authority CEO Thomas Naughton. “The airport is a community, and we pull in travelers, customers, employees, and volunteers from all over. The nature of what we do is helping facilitate connections – what better place to illustrate that we are stronger when we work together, and that there are tremendous opportunities to give back and help contribute to many worthwhile causes throughout our region?”
“We are always looking for opportunities to recruit new volunteer customer service ambassadors here at the airport,” said DTW Customer Service Manager Fran Wood. “Finding passionate and committed volunteers is our challenge; but there wasn’t a shared local venue or platform to find new recruits, so we thought we would create one. Many of the organizations we have worked with over the years, thought it was a great idea as well, and the response has been wonderful.”
