Goodwill Celebrates Goodwill Week
May 3 - 9, 2021
Happy Goodwill Week!
Every year, the Goodwill network celebrates the impact stories of transformation and success made possible by shopping and donating with our organization. The Goodwill enterprise is a network of 156 community-based, autonomous organizations in the United States and Canada with a presence in 12 other countries. To meet the needs of their local communities, each local Goodwill organization designs its own programs and services to help people find work near where they live.
Goodwill of the Finger Lakes is a caring, local, person centered not-for-profit organization that does a lot of good in the communities we serve. Our social enterprise model takes an innovative approach to create job opportunities for people with barriers to employment while generating revenue to support our mission programs and services.
Headquartered in Rochester, NY Goodwill of the Finger Lakes along with The Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ABVI) and 2-1-1/LIFE LINE have a very long and successful history. We are a dynamic team comprised of over 700 individuals that use our passion and expertise to find innovative solutions to address pressing social needs. Each year we positively impact the lives of over 150,000 people. And your shopping and donating helps to keep 25 million pounds of items out of landfills each year. That's a lot of stuff!
Join us this week on our social channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter,) as we highlight the impact your shopping and donating can do through Goodwill. We thank you for supporting our organization - we can do so much GOOD because of YOU!
