The revenue generated through the sale of gently used donated goods, funds job training and job placement services for local people in need. Thanks to your generous donations, we’ll help thousands of people in the communities we serve improve their lives through the power of work.
You might be thinking, “Why does Goodwill need my money? Don’t they sell things in their stores?” While selling donated items is a primary way Goodwill funds mission-related services, financial gifts are equally important. Your gift is tax-deductible and we appreciate every penny.
Sometimes a donation of time can be the most generous and effective means of helping an organization. Marion Goodwill Industries is always looking for volunteers to assist in our ongoing battle to conquer unemployment barriers, and help create jobs locally.
Over the years, we have had volunteers job train individuals, plan events and help promote our mission, programs, and services to the community at large.
Additionally, you might have a special skill or talent that could assist a Goodwill employee. Some of the individuals we serve face language barriers, lack driving skills, wish to better their computer skills, etc. Any knowledge you can share with an individual trying to better themselves is invaluable and leaves long lasting results.
