I am a current Board member for the Goodwill Foundation which supports Goodwill Industries of the Upstate/Midlands SC. I am in my 3rd year of involvement with this organization. I work in support of Goodwill Industries because I see the mission and cause for this organizaiton as being critical for so many in this region. Goodwill Industries works to give people a hand but not necessarily a hand out. Through programs at Goodwill, they teach lifeskills and help people build capabilities and therefore, self-sufficiency. Through "Job Connection" people served by Goodwill are finding meaningful opportunities in the community to be employed and earn a living. I love to see the morale improvement that comes from a person served by Goodwill learning new skills and then taking those skills to the job market. That is a large part of why I supporrt Goodwill Industries through participation on the Goodwill Foundation.

After a tour of Goodwill Industies main offices in Greenville SC I was very impressed with the hands up community program that revolved around collection of electronics from the public and used them for education and recycling. We arranged a donation drive at my salon to recieve electronics and drive awareness. The event was a success. Goodwill leaders and employees are professional and knowledgable and wonderful to work with.
