True Stories of Service
ServiceNation is looking for real-life stories that lend themselves to news or talk shows, both national and by local stations, in the event that we are asked to help identify individuals who would be comfortable speaking out about their service experiences in such situations.
These stories should reflect current or recent activity. There should be a person or persons who could be interviewed. Stories can focus on a person whose service has had a profound effect on them, individuals or groups who have overcome barriers to service, people or programs that include particularly creative or interesting service activities, or service efforts that have had an extraordinary impact. The story may be about a single person's service or the efforts of a large group. It may feature an organized program or an informal action that has had a big impact.
To submit a story, please write up your story briefly here, but with enough detail and context so that the reviewer can appreciate why it is newsworthy or otherwise interesting to the public. Include the following information: Where and when did it occur? Where is the person who could be interviewed actually located? Candidates should be able to clearly explain their experiences.
Please provide some information about the person to be interviewed. What service program, if any, was involved? (Please include the program's name, website, contact information for a person who can provide additional information, including arranging for an interview).
