Salem Area Ecumenical Ministries

As originally broadcast on March 20, 2024, on Blue Ridge PBS …

Organized in 1997, Salem Area Ecumenical Ministries (SAEM) is a gathering of lay people, pastors and local service agencies from Salem, Virginia, who work together to serve those in need: a summer “feed and read” program for children; student-led food pantries in area schools; and its signature “Mrs. Dorsey’s Clothes Closet” which provides free, gently used clothing and household items.

But the all-volunteer organization is in need of some sophisticated marketing to attract more donors and volunteers to its cause. Thankfully, Wheeler Digital is back for its third BUZZ to help. Many thanks also to the Louise R. Lester Foundation for granting us the funds to underwrite our production costs for this episode … our 46th BUZZ!
