Independently operated and governed local Goodwills in our area are sending out a message that their operations are solid and they are dedicated to continuing their mission of providing jobs for people who face barriers to employment, and affordable necessities to families.
“There are six autonomous Goodwill organizations throughout Canada, beyond Toronto. We are very concerned and saddened by the issues in Toronto, but every Goodwill is unique. Each Goodwill has a local governing board of directors, made up of community leaders,” says Michelle Quintyn, CEO of Goodwill Industries, Ontario Great Lakes. “The Goodwills we represent are solid financially and we need donations, as always, to fulfil our mission of providing affordable necessities to families in need, while providing opportunities for persons who experience barriers to employment and other important social services.”
“We want to ensure our employees, our donors and our communities that the work of Goodwill will continue uninterrupted in the communities we serve, and we still need the very generous support of our donors to do so,” said Kevin Smith, CEO of Goodwill Industries Essex Kent Lambton, in Sarnia.
