“We are excited to open the first Donation and Employment Services Center at our Goodwill,” states Jim Forer, Vice President, Donated Goods. “Pulaski was the perfect location to offer a center combining both a donation site and employment services. Donations are the fuel for Goodwill’s mission. We look forward to being a larger part of the Pulaski community and helping people with job training as well as collect their generous donations.”
The new location will help to collect donations more efficiently, and directly tie to the mission with employment services being available in the same space. It also provides a vastly improved facility for the donation attendant. The new center also supports Goodwill’s strategic plan by providing needed services in the communities it serves as well as creating a team member centered organization.
