Day 11: Martin relocated to his hometown of Greenwood after Hurricane Ian destroyed his Jacksonville, FL home. While shopping at Goodwill, Martin saw our Job Connection and stopped in to see what employment services he could receive. The Employment Specialist told Martin about an upcoming hiring event, where Martin went on to ace an interview with Fuji Film and accept a position. Martin says he loves his job and is looking forward to further career growth.
We place thousands of South Carolinians into meaningful employment and skills training programs each year. And through those services, people like Martin regain their self-worth and are able to enjoy active roles in their communities. We are a locally owned and operated non-profit that – through your support – can continue to extend “Goodwill to all.” You can support our Goodwill by going to: www.goodwillsc.org/give-online/, donating gently used goods at a donation center, shopping in any one of our 40 retail stores, or simply by sharing this post with others.
