Fellow San Diego Marketers! Join us in an exciting opportunity to make a big difference for San Diego children through our partnership with the United Way of San Diego.

Did you know: Kids who struggle to read, struggle to spell, and those from low-income families are 6 times less likely to graduate?

AMA San Diego is looking for 2-3 marketers with tactical direct mail experience — list acquisition, copywriting, and design — who are willing to provide an extra group of eyes to help the United Way of San Diego with its upcoming drive. This is an important donation drive for the United Way with a specific focus on children’s education, which has already provided a much-needed, positive impact to the community.

Individuals who are interested can get in touch directly with Brandon Hull brandon.hull@sdama.org or (760) 218-4531, or fill out the form below to get in touch with us.
