Proud To Support Our Returning Military
              Giving Back To Those Who Gave Everything.
Helps ‘American Hometown Heroes’
The Phone Book, and a coalition of independent Yellow Pages publishers have banded together to create a new jobs program for returning veterans who would like to start a business in their hometown. The initiative, “American Hometown Heroes,” is under way in 49 states and 40,000 communities.
Every year, thousands of men and women proudly serve in our military, preserving the freedoms and democracy that makes our country great. Yet, when they return home, they find the current state of our economy does not provide them the support and job opportunities they were hoping for. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate among military veterans is nearly double the national average.
However, independent Yellow Pages publishers are in a unique position to help. Print and online Yellow Pages continue to be the number one source for consumers when they want to find a local business. In the last year alone, 84% of people used either print or online Yellow Pages, rating it as the most trusted and accurate source they choose. Print and online publishers are a great resource for any individual looking to start a new business.
The “American Hometown Heroes” program provides professional advice and marketing assistance to any return- ing veteran that would like to start a new business – all at no charge! It also includes comprehensive no-cost advertising in The Phone Book, both print and online, for a year.
Our military veterans have received training in a wide variety of occupations and trades, now they can put those skills to work for themselves – right in their own hometown. Whether they start their own business in the retail, professional, or service sector, we will help them get started. What better way to put America back to work than investing in the deserving men and women of our armed forces!
                                                     If you are interested in the “American Hometown Heroes” program, or know of someone who is, please contact T h e P h o n e B o o k a t 4 3 5 - 6 5 6 - 5 1 5 1 .
