Jobs in ’12: Let’s Put Greater Washington Back to Work
Here at Goodwill of Greater Washington, we have been working to meet the growing need for jobs in our community. In early 2012, we launched our Jobs in ’12: Let’s Put Greater Washington Back to Work campaign.

The generous financial support of thousands of individuals, companies, and foundations has enabled Goodwill not only to meet those goals, but far exceed them! In 2012, our workforce development team trained, equipped and placed 220 people into jobs in the local economy! 220! And Goodwill was fortunate enough to provide over 660 jobs to local residents jobs through our retail stores, janitorial contracts, and our administrative and support divisions.

These are tremendous accomplishments and ones that all Goodwill supporters should celebrate. Thank you for making a difference… YOU DID IT!

Jobs in 2012 Goals

220The number of people Goodwill placed into jobs in the local economy in 2012.
  • Train, equip and place nearly 200 people into new local jobs that support the local economy during 2012.
  • Continue providing 600+ jobs to local residents currently employed through our retail stores, janitorial contracts, and Goodwill’s administrative and support divisions, many of which are filled by people who face significant disabilities or other barriers to employment.

The work of Goodwill never stops. There will be many more that we need to help in 2013, and soon we’ll be launching another effort to empower greater impact in our community, leading to self-sufficiency for many more. But in the meantime, please pause and celebrate this “good news” from Goodwill.
