Donate Stuff...Create Jobs!Did you know that donating one bag of clothing and one bag of books can equal up to 2.3 hours of on-the-job training for someone in your community? Add to that a used lamp, a dusty computer and perhaps a box of DVDs and CDs, and that number nearly doubles to 5.2 hours.
A simple item donated to Goodwill® can help provide job training programs, employment placement services and other community-based programs for people who have disabilities, lack education or job experience, or face other challenges to finding employment. In fact, Goodwill is the leading nonprofit provider of job training programs and career services in the United States and Canada.
Goodwill's "Donate Stuff. Create Jobs," campaign seeks to highlight the role that Goodwill plays in promoting independence and dignity for people of all backgrounds. To find the stores, job training centers and donation site nearest you, visit http://www.goodwill.org/.
