HAPPY GOODWILL INDUSTRIES WEEK

May 5-11

Marion Goodwill Industries Week

It’s Goodwill Industries week, and we’re celebrating everyone who makes the Goodwill mission possible. We couldn’t do it without the support of our shoppers, donors and community partners. Thank you for making a difference.

This Goodwill Industries Week, we’re celebrating the people who use our services and are taking charge of their lives to gain the skills to earn meaningful employment. People such as Cheyenne.

Cheyenne is a participant in our Marion Youth Program, a collaboration with Marion County Job & Family Services. She has been enrolled in the program since February 2018 and has been working at the Marion City Hall / Marion Police Department. Cheyenne has made huge strides towards her goals. She has been working full time hours, caring for her children (including a baby born in the last year) and recently obtained her high school diploma. Cheyenne's work site has been instrumental in her success by allowing her time during the workday to do her homework and even helping her with her studies if needed.

This Goodwill Industries Week, we are celebrating everyone who makes a difference at Goodwill. Our employer partners like Marion City Hall/Marion Police Department are vital to our success.

Goodwill Wheel-a-Thon

Saturday, May 18th

Group Photo

It’s a relay race around the track and the spectators are cheering fervently for their racing friends. The racers are red-faced as their gloved hands pump the wheels furiously. The crowd laughs as several racers learn that driving a wheelchair is harder than it looks, going straight when you want to turn, or backwards when you want to go forward. The leader boards change and the excitement builds on the road to the final four.

Who will win this year? Hopefully your team!!! But the definite winners will be the men, women and families who benefit from the services of Goodwill Industries.

We invite you to join us on Saturday, May 18, 2019 for our 29th annual fund-raiser as a participant or spectator. The Wheel-A-Thon helps you learn first-hand about the challenges and barriers people with disabilities face on a daily basis.

Goodwill Industries is a non-profit organization that has served the “heart of Ohio” for over forty years.

The proceeds from the Wheel-A-Thon support our programs and services. Goodwill’s Workforce Development Department and Mission Services programs help individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment explore possible careers, prepare for the job market, and find appropriate employment opportunities within their community.

Roses are sweet and rubies are nice, but moms love looking great for a bargain price.
