More than 8 million Americans are out of work and their families are facing tough times. At Goodwill Industries, we know that the most effective way to help people is by providing them with the means to earn a paycheck and support their families long-term.
During the past five years, your local Goodwill placed more than 4,400 people into jobs, and generated more than $96 million in new payroll purchasing power. That person might be the teller at your bank, the teacher's aide at your child's school, or the administrative assistant in your office. And they couldn't have made it without the support of people like you who donate to Goodwill.
During this busy holiday season, Goodwill renews our 100-year-old pledge to help people discover and develop their God-given gifts and go to work. With your donations and year-end financial support, Goodwill helps deserving people receive a hand-up to the joy and dignity derived from a paycheck.
This holiday season, make a difference with your donations. Visit our Web site at www.goodwillworks.org to find a convenient Goodwill donation center and our extended holiday hours of operation. Thank you for your support to help Goodwill build lives, families, and communities - one job at a time.
