While the dust has settled on 2014, the impact of Goodwill has been well received in 2015, as evident by our 2014 Community Impact Report. While the report this year took on a bit more traditional layout, the content of our report is displayed in an impactful way through the use of creative visuals and 2014’s theme – Building for the Future.
Our goal for the 2014 Community Impact Report was to show our investment in our strong foundation but allow us to build upon our extraordinary history – that being our 95th year in operation.
Last year we helped place job seekers in 8,495 jobs, an increase of 27.7%; all while serving more than 72,000 individuals overall within the Goodwill family.
With the opening of three Goodwill Store & Donation Centers in 2014, our store count by December 31, 2014 was at an impressive 57 stores, serving 13 counties in Wisconsin and 10 counties in Illinois.
Our impact stretches far beyond the individuals we serve and into the communities and environments we enjoy. In 2014, we kept 87.6 million pounds of clothing and textiles out of landfills, while working with 4,707 schools on our semi-annual donation drives.
As you can see, 2014 was a wonderful year at Goodwill. We cannot wait to see the results from 2015!
