Spring is the time to breathe new life into your home-to clean up and clear out and make room for fresh fashions and fabulous finds. Then, spring over to Goodwill! With your donations, GOOD will bloom. That’s because 90 cents of every dollar Goodwill receives in money and goods fund programs and services that empower local job seekers with barriers to employment to find and keep work. Barriers include mental or physical disabilities, lack of education or past incarceration. That shirt you haven’t worn in a year could buy seven bus passes. Those jeans that refuse to button could pay for seven minutes of job coaching. Click here to find a Goodwill near you.
HERE’S ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF OUR MISSION IN ACTION!
Sean Combs’ story in numbers shows the Goodwill mission in action. One Goodwill employment specialist, two months of searching and seven interviews led to ten months and counting of successful employment at Aspen Products. He’s a mechanic working on the huge machines used to make paper plates.
“I was nervous but in the interview, I was hired on the spot!” said Sean. “It was pretty awesome.”
Sean suffers from a mental disability and had been having a hard time finding a job.
