Goodwill Industries Week is May 6-May 12 and this year we are “Celebrating Our Communities”, highlighting the many ways in which we support, and are supported by, the communities in which we exist. Without them, we could not provide employment, job training and placement, and other community-based programs for people with disabilities, those who need education or job experience, and others facing employment challenges.
Goodwill Industries Week has taken place the first full week of May since 1951. As part of the celebration Goodwill organizations around the United States and Canada will host career fairs, donation drives, and offer tours and conduct other celebratory events. You can learn more about the events in your local community by visiting http://www.goodwill.org/week/
Our shoppers, donors, program participants, community partners and employers all help Goodwill fulfill its mission. Because of your contributions, we can continue providing the services that help people learn the skills to earn employment and build brighter futures. With your support, people are starting or advancing careers in fields such as retail, financial services, information technology and health care.
You can show your support for the work and mission of Goodwill by lending your voice and becoming an advocate. By signing up for our Legislative Action Center you’ll receive updates on our public policy agenda and you can connect with your Member of Congress asking for their support for Goodwill® and the people we serve.
As North America’s leading nonprofit provider of job training, employment placement services and other community-based programs, Goodwill is helps people overcome challenges that prevent them from finding and keeping good jobs. Your support helps us achieve our mission, not just during Goodwill Industries Week – but every day of every week.
