GOODWILL OF NORTH GEORGIA
PARTICIPATES IN THE GEORGIA GIVES DAY MOVEMENT
It Feels Good to Give Back
Atlanta — Building on Goodwill’s belief that it feels good to give back, Goodwill of North Georgia is participating again in the annual Georgia Gives Day movement.
Georgia Gives Day takes place November 17 this year, and is state-wide day of giving to help local nonprofits and causes. Scheduled toward the beginning of giving season, the goal of Georgia Gives Day is to be a state-wide day of giving with a focus on those organizations that make an impact in our communities close to home.
“Goodwill of North Georgia has been impacting job seekers and their families through job training and placement services for ninety-one years,” said Elaine Armstrong, vice president of marketing. “Generous support from our donors and shoppers will help us as we seek to place 23,000 people into jobs by June 30.”
Launched by the Georgia Center for Nonprofits in 2012, Georgia Gives Day has brought together thought leaders in philanthropy, social media and grassroots organizers.
Goodwill is asking residents of North Georgia to make a special tax-deductible gift on Georgia Gives Day.
“Even a small amount can make a life-changing difference,” said Armstrong. “The demand for Goodwill’s services is as important as ever. Thanks to the help of loyal supporters, we can continue to meet the diverse needs of people in our community.”
Goodwill serves people who have disabilities, those who lack education or job experience, and others facing challenges to finding employment. Last year alone, we helped 20,903 job seekers in the region obtain meaningful employment.
