“It’s the people of Goodwill that inspire me the most.  Working with people from all walks of life, and being a gear in the machine that helps people every day to build independence within the communities we serve truly makes this a fulfilling place to work.  From those that we serve, to our employees, there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t enjoy working for the Goodwill family.”
