KETV Omaha ran a story yesterday featuring Goodwill’s lawn care services, which not only provide grounds maintenance for businesses and homes but also help employ people with barriers to employment through workforce debelopment.

Since 2005, Goodwill Industries has been growing its lawn service business, putting people such as Kevin Brown to work.

Brown is a convicted felon and recovering drug addict. Until he found Goodwill, he said he had trouble finding a job.

Goodwill gave him a chance five years ago and he’s been working in lawn care ever since. It’s a fresh start and an opportunity he said he’s grateful for.

“It means a lot to me. I’m up at 4:30 in the morning with a smile on my face. I’m ready to rock and roll. And I’m blessed, I’m a very blessed individual today,” Brown said.

Kevin was an Employee of the Month in 2010 and a nominee for Employee of the Year. He’s a great worker and a great guy — just look at that smile! You can find out more about Goodwill’s lawn care services — and see Kevin at work — by visiting
