Goodwill Industries of Greater Cleveland and East Central Ohio, Inc. has been serving the local community for nearly 100 years as an independent Goodwill affiliate. While most people recognize Goodwill as a retail thrift chain, that is only a portion of the Goodwill mission. Goodwill is a nonprofit, social service agency dedicated to improving the lives of all people by providing skill-building programs and services needed to help remove common barriers to good jobs and independence. The stores provide revenue to help fund these programs and serve as job training sites. In the pages below, find out how shopping and giving to Goodwill supports the local community.
