Beginning Friday, July 31st, due to the excessive heat and for the safety of our donors and donation center associates, our new donation center hours will be 10 AM - 1 PM daily. We apologize for any inconvenience.

When Phelecia was laid off from her job after four years, she thought she would immediately gain new employment. After several interviews, she struggled to get hired and ultimately remained unemployed for the next three years. It wasn’t until she saw a flyer promoting Goodwill’s 10 week Hospitality Training Program that her fortunes changed. Phelecia immediately signed-up.

As she progressed through the program, Phelecia gained confidence in her ability to gain employment. That confidance resulted in success when Phelecia was hired by a local hotel as a night auditor.

She has been in her new position for a little over a year and loves it! Phelecia aspires to one day become a CFO. We are confidant she’ll achieve her dream!
