GOODWILL INDUSTRIES OF UPPER SOUTH CAROLINA INC
February 13, 2010

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.

create even more programs to help individuals in need build sustainable skills to become and stay employed. It could also help even more people in this endeavor.
