As we celebrate Goodwill Industries Week May 5 to 11, we also celebrate the community that makes our work at Goodwill of Greater Washington possible.
More than 2,300 people come to our Goodwill each year seeking training, resources and support on their path to employment and greater independence. We expect to serve thousands more in 2019 through our job training programs in Hospitality, Security and Protective Services, and our new Healthcare training program.
Goodwill invests an average of $5,500 in each student who completes our training programs. But we can offer those programs at no cost thanks to those who make financial gifts to support our mission, shop at our retail stores and Round Up their purchases.
As we spend the first week of May celebrating the positive and measurable impact Goodwill makes on our community, we hope that you will consider supporting our efforts in one or more of the following ways:
ENGAGE: Your corporate or individual partnership with Goodwill can provide a competitive advantage, build brand affinity, and support your corporate social responsibility goals.
EMPLOY: Goodwill’s job training programs will meet your workforce needs by providing candidates who have received employability skills training and relevant industry-recognized credentials.
INVEST: Goodwill’s social-enterprise model means your financial investments can be put toward unique and innovative programs that create a long-term, transformative impact in the lives of those we serve.
No matter how you choose to support Goodwill’s mission, it will be welcome, appreciated, and impactful.
