GOODWILL WEEK 2017

From May 8-12, Goodwill is celebrating Goodwill Week. For 115 years, Goodwill has worked in communities to help people get back to work and support their families.

Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee connects people who are unemployed or underemployed with career navigation and skills attainment so they can advance their careers and earn long-term stability for themselves and their families. Goodwill helps anyone facing challenges to finding employment — including youth, seniors, veterans, immigrants and those with disabilities — gain skills and credentials, receive support services and find jobs.  

Matthew Bourlakas, President and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee, asks supporters of Goodwill to do five things in observance of the five days of Goodwill Week:

SHOP 

at one of Goodwill’s 36 stores in middle and west Tennessee or at OnlineGoodwill.com.

DONATE 

clothes or household items at one of 80 Goodwill Donation Express Centers.

REFER 

someone in need of work to Career Solutions. Have them call: (800) 545-9231.

ROUND UP 

to the nearest dollar when making a purchase from Goodwill.

SHARE 

with others about Goodwill’s great bargains and its mission.
