PHOENIX (KPHO/KTVK) –
A Valley veteran is in the middle of a unique campaign to draw attention to the ongoing problem of unemployment among vets.
Lance Whitford founded the nonprofit Vets2Work.US, with the goal of putting homeless and unemployed veterans to work.
He is on day 20 of what he has dubbed his “30-30 Campaign.”
Whitford is working at 30 different jobs, for one day each.
Whitford spent Saturday working at a community garden in south Phoenix.
Howard Fleishmann, who owns Community Tire Pros, paid Whitford’s wages for the day.
The money raised will employ 10 veterans for five workdays leading up to Veterans Day.
Whitford is still looking for a few more employers to hire him for a day of labor. Contact information can be found on Vets2Work.US.
