Goodwill Programs Impact in 2018
A Look Back at Goodwill's Service to Individuals and the Community

In 2018, individuals had many different reasons for visiting Goodwill, but they were all motivated to make a change in their life. Goodwill provided services to more than 47,000 people who were in need of assistance to overcome obstacles to success. Some individuals needed services to help them apply for a job, while others needed additional training to advance or start on a pathway to a new career. Youth in our communities gained support to help them make better choices for their future, and other individuals who wanted to gain independence were able to learn new skills and be able to live their lives to the fullest.

Donor Spotlight
Matt Churchill

Climbing under barbed wire, crawling through mud, climbing walls, and jumping over fire - these are a few activities most of us would rather avoid. But for Matthew Churchill, a Goodwill Board Member who has been supporting Goodwill for many years, these challenges are what make up a Spartan Race. Participating in these extremely difficult obstacle races a couple times a year, Matt is passionate about challenging himself athletically. He is also just as passionate about helping others meet their own goals and objectives.
Sparking Joy
A message from our President & CEO, Bruce Phipps

Marie Kondo seems to be the talk of the town as we kick off 2019. In case you haven't heard, Kondo is an organizing consultant and author from Japan. On January 1st, Netflix released the first season of Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, in which "world-renowned tidying expert Marie Kondo helps clients clear out the clutter - and choose joy." And for Goodwill, she has definitely sparked joy.
