Goodwill Week 2014 - Wednesday, May 7, 2014

North Louisiana Goodwill Industries to Host
Events During Goodwill Industries Week, May 6th - 10th

Families across North America continue to face tough times as unemployment rates remain at their highest levels in years. At Goodwill Industries, we know that the most effective way to help people is by providing them with the means to earn a paycheck and support their families long-term. Last year, more than 8,600 people benefited from Goodwill job-training programs and career services right here in North Louisiana. We placed over 1,200 people in jobs outside of Goodwill. States David Tinkis, President & CEO of North Louisiana Goodwill Industries: "They couldn't have made it without the support of the thousands of people who donate to Goodwill and shop in our Goodwill stores."  

Goodwill Industries Week is a national event, which takes place the first full week of May. In celebration of Goodwill Industries Week, North Louisiana Goodwill Industries is proud to host a variety of events for the community and our team members. This is our way of saying "thanks" to the community and our team members and to show them all the good that Goodwill does.
