Sorting at Goodwill

I appreciated learning about Goodwill more during this event. The woman that worked at the store let us know they do not throw anything out that is donated because you never know what some people think of as trash can be another one's treasure. All of the clothes we were helping move out of the store, were going on to the Goodwill outlet instead of to landfills.

Great place to work

As an employee of Goodwill Columbus, this is a great place to work. The staff is extremely passionate about helping to empower people with developmental disabilities and other barriers. It's a really encouraging place to be a part of.
