United Way of the National Capital Area hosted “Operational Success Forum: Mission-Critical Aspects of Human Resources, IT & Finance on April 3, at the Silver Spring Civic Building. Featuring keynote speaker Catherine Meloy, President and CEO of Goodwill of Greater Washington, the event included 100 information technology, finance and human resource professionals (and several people wearing multiple hats in their small organizations).
Meloy recommended that every nonprofit organization bring in a strong Chief Financial Officer as well as a Chief Information Officer who can prioritize the technology needs of the organization, perform a cost-benefit analysis and determine the associated risks of any technological implementation.
A Northern Virginia woman spent years thinking the bonds she was given by her parents when she was born were forever lost.
Without giving it a second thought, she donated an old desk to a Herndon Goodwill store. Shortly after donating it, she was contacted by Goodwill employees who were cleaning out the desk.
They found an old cigar box tucked away inside one of the drawers, stuffed with old bonds worth just under $80,000.
DC Goodwill carries numerous computer accessories ranging from keyboards, mice, cables, printers, monitors, and wireless routers. All electronics and computer accessories on the shelves at DC Goodwill stores all function properly, in good working condition, and are priced at a fraction of their retail price.
