Your Contribution Supports Jobs in Our Communities
Last year, more than 230,000 people throughout the United States and Canada used Goodwill’s employment services to find long-term, meaningful jobs. That’s right, one out of every 275 people who went to work in the United States did so with the help of Goodwill! Your material donations and financial contributions* allow Goodwill to continue providing services to people who need help learning career skills, getting additional training, finding jobs or advancing in the workplace.
Goodwill Omaha has several mission programs that provide services for job seekers who have disabilities, who lack education or job experience, and who face challenges or barriers to finding employment. Last year, we helped thousands of people in our community obtain the training and job placement services they needed to find meaningful employment.
Giving Tuesday is a global effort to change how people take part in the giving season. It feels good to give back, so Goodwill Omaha participates in #GivingTuesday, which is the first Tuesday after Thanksgivng. This year, Giving Tuesday is Dec. 1, and we want to help those in the communities we serve who have been affected by COVID-19, so all donations we receive will support our Employment Solutions program. Through this program, we offer employment training, certification and placement services to anyone in the community who wants assistance finding long-term work. Support Goodwill’s Employment Solutions on Giving Tuesday by donating below, and please enter GOOD2GIVE in the donation code field.
Your material donations help, too! We call it the donation life cycle, and here’s how it works: When you donate items to Goodwill Omaha, we sell those items in our retail stores. The proceeds from the sale of your donated items subsidize our employment programs and services, giving thousands of individuals in the Omaha metro the chance to earn a living, discover independence and succeed in life. No matter how you donate to Goodwill Omaha — material items or monetarily — you’re helping us put more people in the community to work! The video below features two of our CNA certification recipients who completed the CNA program through Goodwill’s Employment Solutions program.
