Turning your donated items into jobs and contributing to a better community.
That’s the power of Goodwill.
For more than 70 years, Goodwill of North Florida has been contributing to building a better community by helping people with disabilities and special needs receive job training and find meaningful employment.
Our approach is simple: We collect donated items from people throughout the community. We generate income by selling those items at our 23 thrift stores and on-line. And we use that money for training and placement services. In addition, we receive government and foundation grants to support specific job-training and placement programs.
Every year — through the generosity of more than half a million donors — we’re able to provide 52,700 people with job-training and placement services, and connect more than 11,500 people with meaningful employment.
Eighty-nine cents of every dollar we earn goes directly into providing these services.
