LOCKPORT, N.Y. - Community Missions has been selected to receive free creative services from J. Fitzgerald Group as part of the Ninth Annual WNY Area CreateAthon.

Sponsored by J. Fitzgerald Group, the WNY Area CreateAthon is a 24-hour creative blitz that provides free marketing services to select nonprofit organizations. The goal is to help nonprofits make a difference in the community, mainly by creating awareness for their services.

Community Missions will be receiving assistance on a few marketing projects during the creative marathon, being held from July 28-29. These projects are set to include a new volunteer brochure, as well as an elevator pitch.

Key members of Community Missions will meet with J. Fitzgerald Group's creative team on Friday, July 29 to listen to pitches and make final adjustments, and the solutions should be up and running shortly after.

"Community Missions was excited to learn that we had been selected to take part in the WNY Area CreateAthon," said Christian Hoffman, Communications & Development Manager at Community Missions. "Our agency offers many different services, with programs serving the homeless, food insecure, mentally ill and juvenile justice-involved youth, along with many others. This help from J. Fitzgerald Group in crafting our message will go a long way in helping us to better serve our community."
