Many people think our retail stores are just places that sell used items to people with low incomes. While we are happy we can provide affordable goods to the community, our retail stores do so much more! The revenue from our stores funds job training programs and other life-changing services to people in our community, offered free of charge.
Goodwill is a job creator. Annually, we employ more than 900 people.
When you donate and shop at Goodwill, you support our mission of building pathways that help people pursue the life they want to achieve. Last year, Goodwill assisted more than 6,000 individuals with resources and support thanks to donations and purchases from the community. Chances are, you may know someone whom we’ve helped because of your support!
