Help veterans and families find jobs

Big Horse Feed and Farm Supplies is once again hosting an event aimed at helping local veterans find jobs and resources they need to be successful following their military service. The second annual Helping and Hiring Our Heroes event will be held Oct. 7, at the Big Horse Feed property, corner of Butterfield Stage Road and Temecula Parkway in Temecula.

The Community Resource and Job Opportunity Fair, open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., for members of the Armed Services, veterans and their families will have a variety of job placement services, a career fair and community resources information.

The Patriot’s Hour featuring specialty acts and entertainment saluting America is scheduled for 1-2 p.m. The corn maze will be open, and there will be activities for young and old alike.

Currently, organizers are looking for vendors and sponsors for the event. The event is being held in conjunction with the Veterans and Military Networking Group for the Temecula area, as well as a wide variety of sponsors including Ralph’s, U.S. Bank, Precision Alignment & Brake, Make A Difference America, RE/MAX, Riverside County Workforce Investment Board, Reality Rally, Military and Veterans Appreciation Trust Foundation, The Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce, The Gary Sinise Foundation, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, the city of Temecula, Armed Services Camp Pendleton and the Valley News.

“Come help support our military men and women in uniform by bringing your veteran-affiliated nonprofit organization resources and your business job opportunities to the Big Horse Corn Maze,” Rose Corona, owner of Big Horse Feed and Farm Supply and event organizer, said. “We hope to build on last year’s success by having more businesses here with their job opportunities. Military veterans make great hires.”

Each organization taking part in the event will be provided a free 10-foot by 10-foot area to share information, resources or potential job opportunities for veterans and their family members.
