Alicia Battle/Director of Workforce Development, Goodwill of North Georgia
At Goodwill of North Georgia, the mission is a simple one: put people to work. Every day, thousands of men and women face barriers that make it difficult for them to find work and earn a paycheck to support their families. Sometimes it’s lack of training or education, limited job skills, or a disability. But with the support of donors and shoppers like you, Goodwill of North Georgia overcomes those barriers.
Their training programs prepare people for careers in a wide array of fields such as retail, financial services, floor technology, healthcare, traditional and green construction, forklift operations, and more.
Think about Goodwill and the good they do the next time you’re deciding what to do with your gently used goods, or even when you’re about to go treasure hunting for a bargain. If you’d like to help them improve communities, strengthen families, and energize the economy, they welcome your donations and invite you to visit their stores.
