I AM THE STORY BEHIND THE STORE...MEET ROLLIN

Rollin

Rollin came to Goodwill through our Job Development Program. Our Job Development team works with individuals in finding jobs and equipping them with the appropriate tools to become independent.

Rollin has had a lifetime of heart problems that included multiple heart attacks as a young man and the subsequent placement of a pacemaker. Many employers were not willing to employ him due to his medical issues. After getting a job through the assistance of Goodwill, he had to undergo additional heart surgeries. After his cardiac rehabilitation and therapy, Rollin utilized the tools he learned in the Goodwill program to find employment on his own. He remains employed today.

When asked to describe his experience with Goodwill, Rollin stated that our organization is approachable, knowledgeable, and committed to treating individuals as valued members of the community.

Rollin was able to overcome obstacles and become independent in his job search by using the skills provided to him. Rollin believes, like Goodwill, in the power of work.
