02 Dec Saying ‘Thank You’ Just Doesn’t Seem Adequate.
Saying ‘thank you’ just doesn’t seem adequate. How can I, how can all of us at Goodwill, thank you enough for all the donations you give? Without you, our donors, Goodwill could not fulfill its mission of providing free employment and training services throughout Middle and West Tennessee. Without you we could not serve the more than 11,000 Tennesseans who will visit our 17 Career Solutions Centers for help with their job search. Without you we could not employ 1,600 Tennesseans who work throughout the 46 counties served by our Goodwill. Without you, lives could not be changed.
Just how do your gently-used items help Goodwill serve its mission? The items you donate are immediately put to good use. They are processed and transported to each of the 30 Goodwill stores in Middle and West Tennessee. More than 85 percent of the revenue from the sale of each piece of merchandise is used to provide mission services.
To read about some of the people who’ve been helped because of the generosity of you, our donors, and to calculate what your donations mean to others, please visit our website. Add up what each piece of clothing, every household item or electronic donation means in terms of free job services. You’ll see that you really do change lives. And for that we say, “Thank you.”
