Goodwill Receives Donation from Central Illinois Tee It Up for the Troops
Goodwill of Central Illinois has received a donation of $15,000 from Central Illinois Tee It Up for the Troops.
The donation was presented by Jeff Kolbus and Jerry Jackson, of the veterans’ support organization. Tee It Up for the Troops is a national non-profit organization founded in 2005.
The money donated will support Goodwill’s General Wayne A. Downing Home for Veterans. The facility is a 15-bedroom home for male veterans that provides an intensive holistic program. Its goal is to assess the needs of each veteran and customize services to directly meet those needs.
“We rely on donations like this to make sure these men have exactly what they need,” said Goodwill President and CEO, Don Johnson. “Tee It Up for the Troops has supported us for 12 years and we rely on partners like them. They understand how important it is to stand by these brave men.”
