BE A LOCAL HERO
Your donations change the lives of people in your community.

Dear Friend of Goodwill,

Each year over 4,000 people from the communities we serve come to Goodwill for help finding, keeping, and advancing in good jobs. Whether they are struggling financially, have disabilities, are reinventing themselves after making mistakes, or are homeless, your annual gifts help them get on their feet.

Sean started his journey with Goodwill as a participant in our Workforce Development Program. Individuals with disabilities or other barriers to employment are referred to this program to explore possible careers, prepare for the job market, and find appropriate employment opportunities. Sean came to Goodwill through Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities.

Sean

Sean and his Goodwill coach worked side by side on completing a job assessment, learning about his skills, likes & interests. Once assessed, Sean began the process of resume writing, application submission. and follow up with his job coach.

Sean applied to one of our Goodwill retail stores and after the interview process, he was hired. With some additional support from his job coach, Sean has worked extremely hard for the past two years in his position. His customer service skills have improved greatly. He is able to train new employees in his position, and has taken on additional responsibilities.

Sometimes the issues holding our neighbors back from employment are complicated, and sometimes it just takes one simple step to connect them with a new job. We hope you will select a level of support that will help someone in our community experience the power of work. Please remember that no amount is too small. Every act of kindness is heroic.

On behalf of our staff, volunteers, board of directors, and those we will help with your gift, thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Bob Jordan, President & CEO
