Zachary's story is not unique. Every day, around the country, people are helped by the same kind of free services that have benefitted Zachary. Those free services — which include job placement, job training, skills building and employment services — are funded by donations to Goodwill’s retail operations. For example, a used computer, when donated to Goodwill, can fund more than four hours of career counseling at a Goodwill center.
Last year in New Mexico, nearly 15,000 people accessed the Goodwill services they needed to succeed.
At Goodwill Industries of New Mexico, we hope that this holiday season, everyone will fight for job creation, purpose and opportunity. Each of us can make a real difference simply by giving a financial gift or donating our stuff to Goodwill.
Rest assured, when you do that, you create opportunities for others who are trying to find a job and build skills, including veterans and military families, single mothers, youth and many others, including people like Zachary.
Here’s wishing you and your family the very best holiday season and a joyous new year.
