Headlines and Body count in Writing for Public Relations

Updated on July 6, 2017
  • Your organization hosts a clothing closet for families who experience difficult times making ends meet or who may be without clothing for themselves due to a fire, flood, or other emergency. The clothing closet is made up of donated, gently used items from community members and is operated by volunteers with state funding. The clothes are available free of charge and include clothes for all seasons for men, women, and children. The closet recently won an award from the mayor’s office as the City’s Best Resource in 2011. The head of the clothing closet is a woman who once was homeless because of a natural weather emergency and who was able to get her life back on track as a result of the help of her church and local support agencies. She attended college, earned a degree, and operates the shelter. She recently started a sideline activity teaching people how to mend clothing, hem pants, and properly wash and dry items to ensure that they are the cleanest they can be. Tide detergent heard about this and donated 1,000 bottles of detergent for the clothing closet to distribute to residents when they get clothing from the closet. In addition, Tide offered to purchase a washer-dryer combination for 25 residents who demonstrate a need and prepare a written statement explaining how they were helped by the clothing closet and how much they could benefit from the new appliances. The deadline for these entries is in 90 days.

    You decide that you need an informational brochure about this program and you also decide that you would like to run two stories about this program in your organization’s newsletter. For the brochure, using Microsoft Word, prepare a headline for the front cover, three inside panels, and one back panel along with relevant text for each panel. For the newsletter, prepare a main headline for your lead story with appropriate body copy and the headlines and copy for one smaller story that appears on the inside page.

Tide Detergent Giving Washer-Dryer Combos to Residents in Need

Saturn’s Closet has been a clothing closet for families who experience difficult times making ends meet or who may be without clothing for themselves due to a fire, flood, or other emergency since 2009; we offer the clothing items to those in need at no cost. Saturn’s Closet is made up of donated, gently used items from community members and is operated by volunteers with state funding. The Closet won the City’s Best Resource award from the mayor’s office in 2011.

Tide detergent recently became aware of how Saturn’s Closet has been working to help the community through providing free clothing to those in need, teaching people how to mend clothing, hem pants, and properly wash and dry items to ensure that they are as clean as they can be. Tide detergent has decided help the community by not only donating 1,000 bottles of their detergent, but also by hosting a contest.

Tide detergent is offering the chance for 25 residents to win their very own washer-dryer combo!

The entry process is very simple; residents of Miami merely need to demonstrate a need for a washer-dryer combo. Residents are asked to prepare a written statement explaining how they were helped by the clothing closet and how much they could benefit from the new appliances. We ask that contestants limit their entries to no more than one page of printer paper. Paper and writing utensils will be provided at the front desk of Saturn’s Closet for those wishing to fill out the entries in-store. All entries must include the contestant’s name, phone number, and address in order for the entry to be considered valid (an entry from is available on page 2). These entries should be turned in to the entry box in Saturn’s Closet. The box is located to next to the front desk. The deadline for these entries is September 24, 2016.

How Can You Help?

Since 2009 Saturn’s Closet has been a clothing closet for families who experience difficult times making ends meet or who may be without clothing for themselves due to a fire, flood, or other emergency. The clothing our closet offers is made up of gently used clothing items that are donated by members of the community. Saturn’s Closet is operated by volunteers with state funding.

Saturn’s Closet is always willing to accept and train new volunteers who are interested in helping the community and we are willing to sign volunteer hour cards for those who need volunteer hours for school. In addition to needing volunteers we always need gently used clothing items. Check your closets, most people have at least one or two items that they no longer wear, that do not fit, or that you just plain hate.

The current head of Saturn’s Closet is a woman who used to be homeless because of a natural weather emergency and who was able to get her life back on track as a result of the help of her church and local support agencies. Since then she has chosen to devote herself to helping others in the way that she was once helped. Her

experience has inspired her to operate a shelter for those in need. As of May 2016 she now offers classes, free of charge, to those wanting to learn how to mend clothing, hem pants, and properly wash and dry items to ensure that they are the cleanest they can be.

If you have knowledge or skill in any area that could help someone in need, Saturn’s Closet would love to offer you the space to host a class on the subject.

Saturn’s Closet accepts volunteers that are 16 and older for positions at the closet. If you have skills in sewing, knitting, or mending and are interested in helping, we welcome all ages to our location on the first Saturday of every month from 6 am to 9 am. During this time anyone can assist Saturn’s Closet with clothing repairs and mending.

We hope to see you soon!
