Your Giving Can Change a Life!
December 19, 2016
Goodwill is more than just donation centers and retail stores. Every day, we change lives through the power of work.
When you donate to Goodwill, you are giving someone a "hand up, not a hand out" by helping them develop the skills, self-esteem and sense of purpose they need to live a productive life. Together we can provide education, training and job placement for individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment. Few opportunities exist that enable you to give a gift that has such a lasting impact on someone’s life.
Our success can be measured by the success of the people we serve—people like Carra, a single mom with learning disabilities and other challenges who is thriving in the very first job she has been able to retain and is continuing her college education; Jonathan, who never gave up on his goal of becoming the first person in his family to graduate from college; Edward, a US Air Force veteran who has transitioned into a successful career as an industrial electrician.
In 2016, we helped over 1000 people gain the skills and work experience they need on their individual pathways to success. Please join us on our journey as we continue to help others help themselves. Your gift truly makes a difference!
