Goodwill Gets Spooky with Sponsorship

fall-o-ween-Donation1We are very excited to announce that Goodwill is sponsoring Prairie Gardens with Bales of Clothes (1000 lb at time) for the free scarecrow making at the Fall-o-Ween Fest at Prairie Gardens September 15 & 16 and September 22 and 23.

We have a message from Goodwill on the importance of your Goodwill donation.

Have you ever wondered how much that old t-shirt in your closet means? What about that pile of dusty books in your basement? Well, that old t-shirt translates to 6 minutes of resume preparation for someone with a disability. And, that dusty pile of books works out to 19 minutes of on-the-job training for someone with a disability. Goodwill Industries of Alberta strives to change the lives of people with disabilities and disadvantages by turning household donations and other resources into training and jobs.

We change lives by increasing the independence of people, creating a sense of contribution to the community, and making it possible for everyone to participate in activities we might take for granted. We help communities across Alberta by providing employment and life skills training to individuals facing employment barriers. We work with employers to find suitable placements and we create job opportunities though the services that we provide.

Goodwill isn’t simply retail stores, donation centre s, or job training. We’re a family of people committed to helping individuals with disabilities improve their lives through meaningful employment and volunteer opportunities.

Donate today at 14 Edmonton and Area locations, or check out one of your four stores in Edmonton and get this year’s Halloween costume at the best price in Edmonton.
