I am a donor. When I drove up to donate, the people were very friendly and helpful. Goodwill seems to have the most locations, which makes it easy and convenient to donate items that I no longer need or use.
As a vendor for Goodwill Industries of Kentucky, personally working closely with the corporate staff members for the past six years, I've come to know that each and every employee has a passion for the mission; to help those with disabilities or disadvantages maintain employment to gain a better quality of life. I see it is not just a job for them, but a cause they truly believe in. Their enthusiasm for the work they do is contagious and makes me feel good about what I do as a vendor to help them in their mission.
I am the Program Director at Dress for Success Louisville and our partnership with Goodwill Industries of Kentucky, Inc. is strong and successful. Goodwill's Power of Work program sends us the highest number of referrals per year (out of 80 Referral Agencies) and we speak regularly to their groups. Goodwill Industries of Kentucky is the organization I most recommend to job seekers and other agencies for comprehensive training and resources! The staff members are thorough and communicate effectively with us. When people say they are donating clothing to us because they don't want to take them to a Goodwill thift store...I start singing the praises of the Goodwill Program and how we are all connected for the good of the women in our community. If their efforts succeed, so do ours!
