Your local Goodwill is turning 100 years old this year – a very significant milestone! For a century now, Goodwill has stayed true to its mission of helping people become the best versions of themselves.
How do we do that? In many ways. Most commonly, we provide the kind of skill-building programs and services people need to train for, find and keep good jobs. In other cases, we help parents reunite with their children through parenting classes. And we even provide 24/7/365 advocacy service to survivors of sexual assault through our affiliate, COMPASS.
You may - or may not - know that when you donate or shop at a Goodwill store, you are helping to raise the funds that support all of the above and more. (You could wish Goodwill a happy birthday simply by going on a little shopping spree!)
In the coming months, you’ll hear some extra buzz about our organization as we embark on a whole year of grass-roots celebrations that YOU are invited to! First up is the grand opening of our brand new retail store in North Canton – please stay tuned for the late April date, because you won’t want to miss all the fun we have planned for you.
Would you like to directly support the good work that Goodwill will do this year? You can always make a financial donation to us here that makes an instant impact on someone here in your community.
Happy birthday to us - and thank you for your support along the way.
