Donate your dollars
We’ll put your dollars to GOOD use.
By making a financial gift to Goodwill, you give a job seeker the chance to find self-respect and self-sustainability. That’s because Goodwill empowers people with disadvantages and different abilities to earn and keep employment through individualized programs and services.
And, your dollars stay local – right here in our community.
On behalf of Goodwill of Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas, thank you!
