"Hi. I’m Terry. It’s an exciting feeling to know that what I do someone appreciates. When Goodwill hired me, I was able to live a better life. I was able to travel and buy other things that I wanted, instead of always only having money for the things I needed. It is indeed good to be a productive member of society."
There you have it. In Terry’s own words. Because of donors like you, Terry and over 3,000 of his colleagues can get and keep a job. Terry lost his sight when he was a baby through no fault of his own. Finding a job was a challenge until he came to Goodwill. What’s remarkable is that he operates in a sighted world with ease, and because of his job at Goodwill, his days have hope and purpose.
It’s amazing to see how one small gift can transform the lives of people with a disability or other barrier to work, into someone who can earn a paycheck. That’s why the support of donors like you is so important. Because of you, Goodwill can rewrite the story of someone like Terry. You can make a donation right now to help rewrite the life stories of others like Terry in our community. Would you make a donation today?
