Assistance League will be having another cookie sale.

Order freshly baked chocolate chip cookies from Assistance League® of Mid-Missouri. Volunteers will bake, wrap, and personally deliver delicious chocolate chip cookies to your friends, family, and colleagues. The cookies will arrive in a beautifully wrapped box and can be delivered to any business or organization in Columbia.

Proceeds from cookie sales help fund our many philanthropic programs. It’s our last cookie bake before fall so don’t delay.  The deadline for April’s cookie bake is Tuesday, April 14, so be sure to get your orders in now!

The Missouri Job Center has relocated to 101 Park De Ville Dr. Ste E, Columbia MO 65203. We are so excited! The Missouri Job Center will continue to provide no-cost employer assistance beginning with our MoJobs system. You can register your company on www.jobs.mo.gov which allows you the ability to post/edit job orders and search for qualified candidates.

We offer monthly hiring events, that are held at the Daniel Boone Regional Library located at 100 W Broadway Columbia MO 65201. Our first Walk-In Wednesday Job Fair will be held on March 18th, 2020. Space is limited and it is first come first serve. I do try to alternate employers so that employers are allowed to participate every other month at best. There is also a larger multi-employer hiring event we co-host with the KMIZ-TV in the Spring & Fall. I can add you to the contact list once specific information becomes available.
