What is Goodwill Industries Week?
Goodwill Industries Week has been observed by local Goodwill organizations for more than 60 years, and it serves as an opportunity to celebrate the power of work through local events and promotions. This year, Goodwill organizations will celebrate Goodwill Industries Week from Sunday, May 6 – Saturday, May 12, 2018. Goodwills across the nation will hold career fairs in their communities, as well as other events to build awareness about Goodwill’s mission, and share how people can join the celebration to make a difference in their communities. In 2017, two million people across the United States and Canada collectively engaged in face-to-face Goodwill services to build and advance their careers.
