During its annual reception, NYSID will recognize Goodwill Industries of Greater NY and Northern NJ, Inc. with its Member Agency of the Year 2012 Award for creating jobs for people with disabilities through its more than 45 Preferred Source contracts.
In 2011, Goodwill NY-NJ, one of the largest employers of people with disabilities in the greater New York area, served more than 9,000 people with disabilities and placed close to 2,000 in jobs with salaries ranging from the minimum wage to more than $40,000 per year.
