Success Through Support
When you donate to Goodwill, you really are changing lives and here’s proof.
Erin Passmore is like most of us. She lives her life, takes care of her family and works to pay her bills. But also, like many of us, Erin found herself unemployed. After 9 years in retail Erin’s company went out of business.
Erin considered this might be a good opportunity for change in careers. She knew to accomplish this she would need some new skills, specifically computer skills. That’s when she heard about Goodwill’s free computer classes. Erin quickly completed the beginner and advanced classes, which focused on Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel.
As someone taking Goodwill’s free computer classes, Erin was also a part of Goodwill’s free employment program. While computer classes and resume building are part of this service, one of the most important features is information on job opportunities. Erin was provided leads on many local job openings and one was very local.
Erin applied for a job as an Employment Support Specialist…at Goodwill. She got the job and now helps people who are looking for work. While Erin’s story is inspiring the most important thing to take from it is that when you donate to Goodwill, you really are changing lives.
Through the sale of your donated items, we’re able to provide these free services and more. The success of our community comes from your support.
