“Goodwill is the employees that exude an incredible spirit and passion for the roles they play in delivering the mission of “building lives that work.” Goodwill is the management who faithfully lead their teams to deliver goods and services through our job connection centers and retail stores. Goodwill is the executives who work tirelessly to guide the organization to ensure the sustainability of the mission. Goodwill is the Board members who give selflessly to provide their talents to the mission of the organization.”
