where can I advertise my community events for free?

Question by on the rainy side: where can I advertise my community events for free?
I work for a company that employs individuals with disabilities. We do several events in our community a year to raise awareness regarding disabilities & our services. I would like to know where I can go to advertise these events for free. Any ideas will be helpful!

In my area, the TV news networks have websites which have a community board for just such things. You might check with your local tV stations to see if they have one as well. Radio stations will do free “public service announcements” for things like that as well. Put your info in writing, keeping it short and sweet, and be sure to include a contact name and number if they have questions. Send it to all of them and sit back and wait.
