You might think – as many do – that Goodwill Industries is simply a place to donate those blue jeans you can’t squeeze into any more or the books your children have outgrown. You figure it’s a worthy place to donate your gently used things so that others might be able to buy them at an affordable price – and you’re right. But, that doesn’t begin to scratch the surface of how Goodwill is changing lives here in Alberta.
Goodwill sells your donations and uses the proceeds to fund job training programs for Albertans with disabilities. Last year, more than 187 individuals with disabilities and barriers to employment benefited from Goodwill’s career programs.
We want to say thank you to the people of Alberta whose continued support allows us to help individuals with disabilities find and keep good jobs and enjoy the dignity and independence that work brings.
