Goodwill BridgePoine Services does so much for the community. They receive thousands of donations of clothing and household goods that they make available to the community through sales at their retail stores. They also provides child cares services and career development. They have programs for children with special needs. When I make donations, I am received by employees that are courteous and caring. The stores are so well organized and stocked. The employees are so dedicated and caring they really make the difference.

We all know about a Goodwill store in our neighborhood. Yes we have all donated our "stuff" that just sits around the house, and yes we have actually purchased some other people's "stuff" in the Goodwill store. Until 12 years ago what I did not know was how valuable that "stuff" was... yes, your "stuff" brings in thousands of dollars that are in turn used to help those individuals in our community with disadvantages. Every dollar makes a difference. I would encourage you to not only look at the Goodwill store, but to inquire about the services that are provided everyday to children and adults with disadvantages.

I have been involved with Goodwill Bridgepointe Services, Inc for 34 years. As a child, I always remember having bags in our house that were designated for the Goodwill. One year we even donated a car! As an adult, I continue to have the same commitment to Goodwill Bridgepointe. We have bags in our house waiting to be filled so we can deliver them to the Goodwill! It is an honor to be a Board Member for Goodwill Bridgepointe!

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

The success stories of the childcare center and job placement.
