Are you struggling with spring cleaning? I know it can get overwhelming trust me. Well Goodwill can help get you through this yearly cleaning event and the best part is you can help those in your community too!
Have you personally seen a family member, friend or acquaintance struggle in this economy? Maybe they have been looking for a job way longer than they should? Or maybe they lost your job? Even if you haven’t seen someone in this economy effected than odds are you’ve seen it online. All you have to do is turn on the TV or pull up social media to see the struggle. It is real.
Goodwill’s career centers, training programs and staffing operations give people the resources, skills and confidence that changes thousands of lives each year. With YOUR donation you can help your community!
When Your Donate to Goodwill YOU Create Jobs
So how can you help to be a part of this growth and effort in your own community? It’s easy! Donate to Goodwill = create jobs!
Getting all the seasonal clothing that no longer fits my kids out of the closet and donated to Goodwill will help provide over 6 hours of on the job training according to the Impact Calculator. And of course the kids will help with spring cleaning, which teaches them to donate things too. If we have perfectly good items that can be loved by someone else, why not help our community? If you are not sure where your local Goodwill is, you can use the Goodwill Locator App available for Android and iOS devices and at Goodwill.org (click “Explore Our Map” on the homepage). Simply input the items you’re donating to calculate the number of hours of career counseling, on-the-job training, résumé preparation, financial planning classes, and other services you’ve helped provide people facing challenges finding employment. When jobs thrive, communities thrive.
Last year, nearly 2 million people engaged in face-to-face Goodwill services to advance in their careers. More than 35 million people accessed education, training, mentoring and online learning tools offered by Goodwill virtually to strengthen their skills and gain industry-recognized credentials.
What do you have that you can donate to Goodwill? How many hours of on the job training will it provide someone in your community?
