The Helms Society

We are pleased to announce The Helms Society as an opportunity for supporters to leave a legacy gift for Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina (GIUMSC).

This ultimate financial level of support is designed to help Goodwill’s participants receive the job training and services they need to become independent for years to come.

Named after Rev. Edgar James Helms, founder of Goodwill Industries International, The Helms Society will allow members to:
•Receive special recognition
•Create sustainability for a cherished organization
•Obtain invitations to special events and CEO updates for The Helms Society 

There are multiple ways to become a member of The Helms Society:
