I have donated to Goodwill off and on for years. They are always very polite and actually make me feel as if my donation REALLY means something to them. I decided recently to look into a bit more about their mission, I knew the did something with putting people in jobs or to work, but wasn't sure exactly what that meant. I assumed it meant just within their stores, but was surprised and proud to find out how much more they do. When they say they "put people to work" that doesn't just mean in Goodwill. They have these job training centers where people can get resume and interview help. They even help people learn how to use a computer, to better train them for job opportunities. So not only are they employing people within their stores, those stores are helping them (by generating revenue) find people in the community jobs. They have a phrase about "not giving a hand out, but a hand up!" Pretty cool if you ask me. Well done Goodwill!!
