60th Anniversary Employee Appreciation Event
One of Central Florida’s oldest and best-known nonprofit organizations is celebrating 60 years of providing job training, placement and other critical resources that strengthen the region’s workforce and quality of life.
Goodwill Industries of Central Florida marked the milestone anniversary with an employee appreciation event on March 10. All 1,000+ employees were invited to visit the headquarters on South Orange Blossom Trail to enjoy food, fellowship and games.
Since its founding in 1959, the local Goodwill has focused on helping job-seekers with barriers to employment, such as disabilities, criminal records and homelessness, find work.
In addition to Goodwill’s 11 Job Connection Centers across Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake, Brevard and Volusia counties, the nonprofit also partners with other community-based organizations at 10 Neighborhood Centers for Families in Orange County, to help with resume writing, interview coaching and assist with leads on job vacancies. These services are funded by the sale of donated items in Goodwill’s 28 retail stores.
