Gino's Success Story

Working Hard at Hardee’s

Gino is a man of many talents and as he started his path with Goodwill’s Work Services program, he soon expressed how he wanted something different and more for himself. Gino was able to find that at Hardee’s Restaurant. As a combined food preparation and service worker at Hardee’s, Gino assists with food preparation, unloads trucks and puts items away, double checks the inventory sheet, changes ice/soda machines, brings food out to the customers and helps out with keeping the lobby area clean, especially during the very busy classic car shows.

Chris Martin

When Chris Martin saw a notice in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel seeking models for a vintage fashion show presented by Goodwill Industries, she thought it “sounded like fun, and it was for a good cause.” Goodwill volunteers present an average of 65 vintage shows per year across southeastern Wisconsin. The shows provide entertainment and raise awareness of Goodwill's programs and services. Each of the shows are created and presented by Goodwill’s Volunteer Services. The proceeds are used to support Goodwill’s mission of providing work opportunities and skill development for people with barriers to employment.
