Last weekend was the first-ever Goodwill: The Power of Work 5k Walk/Run. An incredible experience for all involved – we’d love to share it with you. Take a look:

Speaking of the power of work, GoodwillNyNj serves roughly 160,000 persons a year. How? Well, to start with, we helped 14,000 people find employment in 2010 alone. In fact, at GoodwillNyNj, we place 7 people in jobs every hour of every business day.

We work with children and youth, mature and unskilled workers, persons with disabilities, people moving from welfare to work, refugees and recent immigrants, ex-offenders, and other persons with barriers to employment.

Our agency’s five divisions provide “a hand up, not a handout” to populations with limited opportunities. Thank you for all your support, Goodwill fans – we couldn’t do this without you!
