Striving to Succeed

Hundreds of inspiring success stories are written every year by the people who find meaningful employment and hope for a better future through Goodwill. Many of them have pulled themselves out of desperate situations, thanks to a hand-up from Goodwill’s job training and placement services.

Every year we honor several of these individuals at our annual Striving to Succeed Luncheon attended by some 600 members of the community. One of the highlights of the luncheon is the introduction of the honorees and the presentation of a short video telling their stories.
