On March 21, 2020, all of our stores and donation centers were closed to the public. While Goodwill is prioritizing health and safety, we must consider the significant financial implications of COVID-19.
Goodwill is facing an unprecedented financial crisis; we were forced to make difficult decisions that will impact the lives of thousands of unemployed individuals with disadvantages and disabilities. Our services to the community have been severely limited due to staffing and funding shortages. We were forced to stop offering several programs entirely, including workshops for digital and essential skills, work experiences for individuals with legal history, and extensive job training for students with disabilities.
We can, and must, restart offering services quickly to support our community's most vulnerable populations in this time of need. Please consider making a financial contribution to Goodwill today. Your gift will help us, and our community, overcome this crisis.
