Since its founding in 1901, Goodwill has always strived to give people a hand up, not a hand out. As you celebrate the Holidays this year, we would like to invite you to lend a helping hand to local job seekers with barriers to employment. Holiday Hand Ornaments are now available at all 18 of our stores in the Greater Kansas City area for only $1, $2, $5 or $10. One hundred percent of the proceeds support Goodwill’s mission.
One dollar can’t buy much these days, but it can provide priceless support for the people we serve. A $1 ornament can buy a bus pass for a homeless job seeker. A $2 ornament provides job training help for a client with a disability. A $5 ornament helps provide training classes for an unemployed job seeker. A $10 ornament provides a voucher for professional interviewing attire. The feeling you get from helping local people of all abilities find meaningful work is priceless!
Customers can also personalize the ornaments with the name of the person in whose honor they purchased it. What a gift to give for the Holidays! The ornaments will be displayed at your Goodwill store, though they may be taken home as well.
Goodwill also offers customers a chance to round up their purchase at the register, with the extra amount going to support our mission.
The Holidays offer many opportunities to do Good. We hope you’ll help us spread Goodwill.
There’s a new Goodwill store coming to Bonner Springs! Our current store located at 616 S. 130th Street is still open.
In January, shoppers will have a brand new location to find deals, treasures and employment services.
We’re building a 12,700 square foot store from the ground up right across the street near Burger King, Walgreens and Advance Auto Parts.
The store will have a 9,000 square foot sales floor, convenient drive through donation and a GoodWORKS center where anyone can find free job search help and resources.
The new Bonner Springs store is just another way we’re working to fulfill our mission, to strengthen individuals, families and communities in need through the Power of Work.
