The Picayune Item
Your mayors and counties are declaring this week National Goodwill Week. We ask you to join in.
When you give to Goodwill, we sell your donations and use the revenues to fund employment related services such as job training and career advancement programs, and other support services that benefit people her in southern Mississippi. People who are homeless, those who lack education or work experience, persons with a disability, as well as other job seekers, benefit from your donation.
We offered approximately 10,297 services to people in south Mississippi in 2010.
This spring, make a charitable donation by cleaning out your closets and donating your items to your Goodwill of South Mississippi to support our mission to enhance employment and educational opportunities.
As we celebrate Goodwill Industries Week 2011, we want to say Thank You to the people of the Mississippi Gulf Coast whose continue support allows us to help people find and keep good jobs and enjoy the dignity and independence that work brings.
Goodwill nationally places someone in a good job every 42 seconds of every business day.
