School is back in session for many schools in the Southeastern Louisiana area. It can be difficult to keep up with the clothing needs of growing children, and there are many families in our community where this becomes a financial burden. Goodwill’s mission of repurposing quality clothing at affordable prices releves this stress letting everyone send their children back to school with nice, well-fitting clothes without the extra worries.
How Does Contributing to Goodwill Make an Impact?
While many charitable organizations focus on handouts, Goodwill focuses your donations on handups. Your donations don’t just cloth the poor; they fund programs that help people with disabilities or other barriers to improve their economic self-sufficiency by providing training, education, support services, and employment. By working to habilitate those in need, we turn your one-time donations into gifts that help people for the rest of their lives.
Goodwill works to enhance the dignity and quality of life of individuals and families by strengthening communities, eliminating barriers to opportunity, and helping people in need reach their full potential through learning and the power of work.
