Goodwill's mission focuses on job placement, job training and job services that help unemployed and underemployed individuals in central and coastal Virginia. In 2015, we placed 2,602 individuals into employment throughout our communities, gained critical funding to launch our Hospitality Career Track and Customer Service Training programs, opened two new retail stores and employed over 1,300 associates.
To help support our mission, we need:
Letter from the President & CEO and the Chair of the Board
It is in the growth of our organization- opening one new store in Powhatan and a new attended donation center in Sandbridge.
It is in the expansion of our government contracts in partnership with Goodwill of Charleston, South Carolina. It is in the collaboration with Thomas Nelson Community College to provide HVAC training in our Hampton support center.
It is in the over 1300 associates employed in Donated Goods programs, government and commercial contracts, workforce development programs and administrative support roles. It is in the 18 volunteers on our Board of Directors and in the 15 volunteers on our Advisory Board that represent the community leadership and provide our governance.
It is in volume of donations topping 51 million pounds for this year- donations from our most generous communities. It is through the over 3 million customer transactions in our retail stores and outlets.
It is seen through every dollar and every donor who gave to our Capital Campaign and Annual Fund efforts. It is shown through our daily collaboration with multiple community partners.
It is evident every day in the individuals who walked through our doors or contacted our Community Employment Centers in 2015 seeking help to find a job. And it is proof in the job placement for over 2,602 people in a multitude of industries.
2015 was a year for us to begin to better define our work- the work that we do to sustain our mission as well as the work that we do to deliver our mission. Our collaboration with the community partners: employers, foundations, community colleges, and non-profits will continue to provide direction and tangible impact into 2016. As a social enterprise, Goodwill will continue to reinvest in work that supports our fiscal health and our workforce; as a non-profit, Goodwill will continue to invest in work that builds our communities, collaborating with the right partners to create sustainable employment for those that need us most.
It begins with work- with getting a job- and it ends with changing lives. And we can’t do it without you. Many thanks for believing in the power of work, through your support of our work in 2015.
Charles Layman, President and CEO
