NCJW celebrates 6 years with Fox8 Defenders

Congratulations to our NCJW volunteers for celebrating their six year anniversary
 at Fox8! NCJW volunteers  staff the FOX 8 Defenders consumer
advocacy hot line.They tackle just about every kind of consumer concern
 you can imagine.   

"We have had over 10,000 calls to us," Director Susan Tramontana said.
The volunteers' biggest cheerleader, she explained volunteers have answered
10,000 phone calls or online complaint forms over the last six years.
She says the FOX 8 Defenders have saved consumers nearly $2.5 million.

"Sometimes just listening, figuring out what their (consumer) problem is and
 sending them in the right direction - we call that a good
response," explained one NCJW volunteer, Cindy.

years in the Fox8 program,
