This is the perfect time of year to say “thank you” to this community for blessing us with nearly a century’s worth of support.
Chattanooga Goodwill Industries opened its doors in 1923. Our mission was then and is now to help people with disabilities get work experience, learn skills, find good jobs, earn paychecks, enjoy independence and contribute to their communities.
Over the years, we’ve expanded our service area, started new programs, added several retail stores and helped thousands of people. But these achievements aren’t ours alone. They also belong to donors who give us the gently-used items we sell in our stores, to shoppers whose purchases provide funds to support our programs, to employers who hire our clients upon completion of those programs, to volunteers who lend us their time and talent and to more than 500 area Goodwill employees who help make it all happen.
We are grateful for their contributions to our work past and present. Together we have built an agency that this year will help nearly 8,000 clients.
We join with those 8,000 people in saying, “Thank you donors, shoppers, employers, volunteers and employees for believing in Chattanooga Goodwill Industries.”
