I am a current Board member for the Goodwill Foundation which supports Goodwill Industries of the Upstate/Midlands SC. I am in my 3rd year of involvement with this organization. I work in support of Goodwill Industries because I see the mission and cause for this organizaiton as being critical for so many in this region. Goodwill Industries works to give people a hand but not necessarily a hand out. Through programs at Goodwill, they teach lifeskills and help people build capabilities and therefore, self-sufficiency. Through "Job Connection" people served by Goodwill are finding meaningful opportunities in the community to be employed and earn a living. I love to see the morale improvement that comes from a person served by Goodwill learning new skills and then taking those skills to the job market. That is a large part of why I supporrt Goodwill Industries through participation on the Goodwill Foundation.

After a tour of Goodwill Industies main offices in Greenville SC I was very impressed with the hands up community program that revolved around collection of electronics from the public and used them for education and recycling. We arranged a donation drive at my salon to recieve electronics and drive awareness. The event was a success. Goodwill leaders and employees are professional and knowledgable and wonderful to work with.

Ways to make it better...

We had ran this donor drive before. If we had the specific experience of this challenge in the past we would heve been able to create more buzz and a larger turn out.
