Goodwill Industries continually provides oppurtunities for volunteers and those they serve avenues to interact and create rewarding experiences for both parties. I have participated in bowling events, camping trips, art studio activities and each time Im there I feel as those Im the one that has really benefited from giving my time. Goodwill is truly focused on their clients and is constantly trying to improve their existing services and evaluating new ways to serve their clients to ensure they are truly empowering those individuals with disabilities and other barriers
