In 2007, Cindy lost her husband. A year later, she lost her job. “It was a very difficult time,” she said.
Cindy had been out of work for a year and a half when she stopped by the Goodwill Career Solutions center in Jackson for help. Just a few months after enrolling in the program, Goodwill offered Cindy a job as a donation attendant at the Goodwill store in Humboldt where she worked for about a year until the store closed.
Before the store closed, Cindy’s district manager lined up an interview for her with Goodwill’s donations supervisor in West Tennessee. At the time, Brian Martin needed to fill a donation attendant position in Jackson.
