GOODWILL (TOWARDS MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN) INDUSTRIES OF N. LA, INC. HAS A HISTORY OF BEING A STRONG INSTITUTION IN THIS AREA. THEIR PARTNERSHIP IN LENDING HELP IS CONSTANT. THEY BELIEVE IN THE AREA, THEY WANT TO HELP WHEN NEEDED, THEY ARE AN EVER PRESENT PART OF OUR COMMUNITY. I'VE WORKED WITH THEIR STAFF ON PROJECTS, I HAVE SHOPPED IN THEIR STORES, I HAVE DONATED ITEMS AND WILL CONTINUE TO BECAUSE I APPRECIATE THEIR EFFORTS TO CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL OF US IN THIS AREA!

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

shopping & donating.

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

When I am in their store their staff are professional and happy. When I work with their staff on a project they are personable and professional.

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

Professional, personable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help even more people in this community than it already does by continuing to provide job training, jobs and "goodwill" to North Louisiana.
