President's Message



Dear Friends,


For Marion Goodwill Industries, turning 40 isn’t about getting older. It’s about getting better and stronger, and most importantly, it’s about extending its mission of providing services for people with disabilities and disadvantages for another 40 years and beyond.


Today there are nine Goodwill stores in the five counties we serve and our workforce has grown to over 300 employees.  Our positive presence throughout Marion, Delaware, Union, Morrow & Crawford counties has evolved to offer a range of programs including:


  • Job Preparation
  • Job Coaching
  • Job Development & Placement
  • Youth Programs
  • Housing Program
  • Emergency Clothing Program
  • Senior Community Service Employment Program


plus a variety of other services that all strive to provide individuals with a path to independence.


The amount of impact that Goodwill has had on the communities we have served in the past 40 years is significant. We have focused on our growth and how that growth has resulted in more people benefiting from our programs and services.


With your help, we will continue to do what we do best; helping individuals prepare for, find and retain employment. Thank you for making this 40th milestone possible. We could not do it without you!


Robert Jordan

President, CEO
