7OYS Volunteers Needed

Posted: Updated:
LITTLE ROCK -

An Arkansas woman spends over $6,000 on a hot tub that she never receives.

Refund promises are repeatedly broken…so she calls Seven-On-Your-Side.

Our team of volunteers does a great job helping Arkansas citizens in need.  The problem is…we have a need too.  We need more volunteers…so that we can help more people.

Dan and Larry have been serving as Seven-On-Your-Side volunteers for many years.

When a viewer calls 324-HELP...or 324-4357…between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and noon, chances are good they are going to get to visit with Dan, Larry or one of our other volunteers.

But Dan and Larry need some help.

There are only so many cases each can handle…cases like that of Betty Bradshaw of Pine Bluff.

"I think in some instances it is the only thing that will work," says Ms. Bradshaw.  "Without your help I still would not have my money back in the bank or any of the people even talking to me."

Construction complaints. Car concerns. Suspected scams. Repair rip offs.

Dan and Larry have helped people in need from all walks of life.  It is their job to hear both sides and then seek a solution acceptable to both sides.

In betty's case, the agreeable solution was a $6,500 refund.

"I had gone to my limit with them and I didn't know what else to do," recalls Bradshaw. "And I had seen your program on TV so I thought 'Well I will just try Channel 7 On Your Side.' And thank goodness it worked."

We are looking for volunteers to answer calls from 10:00 a.m. until noon on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

If you would like to help, call our volunteer coordinator Donna at 324-7789.

Again…the number to volunteer is 324-7789.
