COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF CENTRAL ILLINOIS AWARDS GRANT TO GOODWILL
Goodwill of Central Illinois has received a $15,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Central Illinois via their Community Impact Fund.
The funds will be used to provide client-specific assistance to unemployed, under employed and dislocated workers. Specifically, these funds pay for things like, transportation costs, interview clothing, work clothing, uniforms, tools and much more.
“These funds allow us to offer even more to those looking for work,” said Goodwill President and CEO, Don Johnson. “Mark Roberts and everyone at CFCI support our community with grants like this. We work together as a community, for the community.”
Goodwill’s free programs are possible through the sale of your donated items. Goodwill Industries of Central Illinois serves 21 counties within Central Illinois. Goodwill offers employment services, veterans’ support services, a youth mentoring program and operates a 15-room veterans’ home. Goodwill employs more than 300 people.
