Often times the good work a non profit does becomes overshadowed with the high salaries of the leadership team vs. the low salaries of the employees. For instance this good will president make over 240,000.00 per year or near $5,000.00 per week when the average full time goodwill employee makes $325.00. That one president salary could employee 15 full time employees. This is the real purpose of charity 15 is far better than one.

Goodwill does so many great things for SW Florida, it can't be put into words. I volunteer all the time for the organization, including their massively successful Festival of Trees event every Christmas season.

All of these services and the stores provide so many wonderful success stories for our area. It's a wonderful thing to volunteer my time to such a great non-profit.

With another New Year here, instead of thinking of the things you should give up, think about how you can give back. It's a much more rewarding way to add fulfillment to your life.

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

2008-2010

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

No changes that I can see at this time.
