Several of our staff here are fans and regularly donate to Goodwill so we are featuring them in our Good Works segment this month.
Goodwill Industries International is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization that has been around for almost 120 years! They are well known for people donating clothing and other items and for their thrift stores all over the country. They also have a robust program for job training in various industries. They have many career centers, making a difference in communities across the country and beyond.
On goodwill.org, they share their mission: Goodwill works to enhance people’s dignity and quality of life by strengthening their communities, eliminating their barriers to opportunity, and helping them reach their full potential through learning and the power of work.
They have served nearly 2 million people worldwide and have helped train over 100,000 people for new careers.
