I partner with Goodwill for some of their printing and mailing services and have had the pleasure of working with them for the past couple of years. I think they are one of the best kept secrets in southern Indiana and I would really like to see that change. The quality of child care they provide and educational opportunities they give to children, young adults and adults in our community often times goes unnoticed. They are not drawn to the limelight, but I believe a little more light needs to shine on this awesome organization. The people I work with and come into contact with at Goodwill Bridgepointe are top notch, including everyone from the recepionist or child care worker to the CEO, Candy Barksdale. They are always on the look out to help in any way by providing the best solution and services for the organization and the community. They have been able to weather the storm through good and bad times with a smile on their faces. They seem to be ever evolving to meet the needs of the community by giving a facelift to their stores, making tough internal decisions and being the ultimate "Green" company. They continual lead the way through change and development to achieve their mission of empowering people with the skills, knowledge and opportunity to improve their quality of life. Being associated with Goodwill Bridgepointe has definitely been and enriching experience. I look forward to continuing to build our relationship by serving on the marketing committee and working with them to get the word out about the best kept secret in Southern Indiana.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the success of their capital campaign to rebuild and expand their Clarksville Indiana store after it was destroyed by fire.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get the word out about the wonderful things that Goodwill Bridgepointe does and provides to our community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Learrning more about all of their services, working with the people and seeing the organization evolve.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Extremely kind, knowledgeable and friendly.

Ways to make it better...

All of the good they do was not a secret.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

One thing I'd also say is that...
