Goodwill uses thrift store revenue, community support, and their training campuses to provide career skills, other education and job placement in a variety of career fields. As a unique nonprofit business serving 15 counties, thrift shop revenue and public donations fuel programs that help people with limited income, disabilities and disadvantages overcome barriers to employment.

This year alone, Goodwill Industries will help 8,500 people with education, job training and placement so they can become independent self-supporting citizens. Of these, more than 1,000 people will be offered office, culinary, catering, retail, custodial, warehouse, transportation and logistics careers thanks to partnerships with employers across Washington. These career development and placement services are funded through generous financial gifts, grants, fees, commercial services and the operation of 37 thrift stores and an online store throughout our western and south central Washington operations.
