This is true! This year, we are celebrating 100 years of Goodwill NY-NJ.

That’s right, the first Goodwill in New York was founded in Brooklyn in 1915. Read more of our history in our previous blog post.

The type of services and jobs we have offered to people may have change through the years, but the goal remains the same: Enhancing the lives of families in our communities. Read an article from The Brooklyn Daily Eagle from November 1945, about a U.S. veteran Goodwill helped. Today, Goodwill’s Operation: GoodJobs helps veterans and their families with these services.

To commemorate our centennial, we would like to show you just a few of the many people who work at Goodwill today. They help individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment to gain independence through the power of work.

So beginning this Friday, March 6 through April 2, get to the movie theater early and enjoy a brief trailer that shows the people of Goodwill. You may see the 30-second short in the theaters below.
