Lemonis pledges jobs, volunteers for national parks

Listen to this story

From Mother Nature Network:

Marcus Lemonis, p0hilanthropist, host of the CNBC reality series “The Profit,” and CEO of Camping World, is tired of waiting on Washington to act. He’s rallying his employees and others to help make a difference during the government slowdown.

During a Jan. 8 live stream on Facebook, Lemonis launched a campaign to not only offer part-time work at his hundreds of dealerships and retail stores to furloughed park employees, but he also offered a considerable force of volunteers to help clean up parks in need.

“If you are watching this video and you work at a national park and you’re furloughed right now, I am offering some hours at our Camping World locations, our dealership locations our Gander locations around the country,” he says in the video. “Give you a couple hours here and there to try and fill in some of the gaps.”
