Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 2.19.55 PMTomorrow, Wednesday, October 14, we’ll continue celebrating our Centennial, this time, with members of our communities in Northern New Jersey.

Our NJ Division will hold a community event and open house for program participants, residents, and partner organizations at our Harrison  Headquarters located at 400 Supor Boulevard; Harrison, NJ 07029. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Our Centennial event in New Jersey is open to the general public and will include:

  • Entertainment and games
  • Vendors with community resources
  • Products and artwork
  • Refreshments

To mark the occasion, U.S. Senator Cory Booker sent a video to congratulate Goodwill NYNJ. Unfortunately, he will be unable to attend.

Goodwill NYNJ serves the ten most Northern counties of New Jersey. The nonprofit organization partners with the NJ Vocational Rehabilitation agency, other nonprofit agencies, corporations and foundations. In New Jersey, Goodwill offers rehabilitation, vocational, and employment services to individuals with all types of disabilities, career services for mid-level retail workers, and employment services for unemployed or underemployed New Jersey residents.

Sales proceeds from Goodwill stores help to support our mission of empowering individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment to gain independence through the power of work. Goodwill stores provide training and work for these individuals.

For more information about the services we offer in New Jersey, please call (973) 481-2300 or visit Goodwill NYNJ website.
