SARASOTA/BRADENTON, FL – Goodwill Manasota, with the communications leadership and hosting talents of vice president Veronica Brandon Miller, has added one more media outlet to share the goodwill and good works being done in our community, through “Tell Me Something Good.” The show, which airs on Sundays on SNN at 9:30 a.m. and on WSRQ (98.9FM, 106.9FM and 1220AM) at 11:00 a.m., will now also be featured monthly in Suncoast Living Magazine. “Tell Me Something Good” focuses on the good that is happening in our community, highlighting those individuals, nonprofits and businesses that are truly making our community a better place to live.
“Not a day goes by that our team isn’t touched or inspired by the acts of generosity we see – whether from donors, fellow team members or business partners we’ve met through our work,” said Miller. “We talked about how wonderful it would be to share these stories with the community at large so that they, too, could be inspired. Thanks to SNN, WSRQ, and now Suncoast Living Magazine, we have even more outlets to talk about the wonderful resources and acts of kindness taking place in our community, and honor those who are committed to improving the lives of others.”
The “Tell Me Something Good” shows being taped in June will feature organizations and businesses addressing family resources, the environment, safety/security, and the theater.
“The partnerships we have developed with local companies and community leaders speak volumes, not only about our mission but also the philanthropic community in which we live and work,” said Bob Rosinsky, president and CEO of Goodwill Manasota. “Spreading the goodwill through various media outlets is another way for us to highlight the great things we are able to be a part of so we can bring attention to new programs, services and the fantastic people and companies with whom we’ve partnered in our community. It’s another chance for us to say ‘Thank you!’ for helping us change lives through the power of work.”
Miller serves as the vice president for the Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Goodwill Manasota, a 501 (c)(3) organization. With more than 25 years of experience in development and cause marketing, she has successfully helped Goodwill rebrand its image over the past five years, increase its fundraising capacity, and secure nonprofit, corporate and media partnerships that have enabled the organization to advance its mission.
