August Luncheon: The Best Pitch Starts with Strong UX Writing and Storytelling

A good story is at the core of the human experience and every good website design. It's also the core of every brand communication—from pitches to crisis communications. What you say—and how you say it—on your website can establish trust and confidence or result in your pitches falling flat.


Join PRSA Blue Ridge as we give back to our community at Feeding Southwest Virginia in Salem. We will be sorting food to ensure quality. 

Volunteers working in Quality Assurance (QA) evaluate donated food products by inspecting and sorting packaged food products to control for such issues as shelf life (dates), dented cans, crushed boxes, or other superficially damaged food. The purpose of QA is to ensure the food is safe for consumption as required by both Federal Government and Feeding America guidelines.

  • Volunteers must be 16 or older.

  • Can the volunteer safely lift 35 lbs.?

  • Volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes.

  • The entrance to Quality Assurance is behind the Food Bank building.
