The job-readiness programs and services provided by us at Goodwill Industries of Kentucky and our community partners are needed now more than ever amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
That’s why we’re so grateful for customers and donors of our 66 retail stores and donation centers across the commonwealth, which help drive our mission of placing Kentucky job seekers with disabilities or disadvantages into reliable employment. Since our stores reopened after a two-month shutdown, we’ve seen a record number of donations and increased activity in our stores.
As a result, with the help of nearly 1,000 employer partners, we’ve placed more than 2,000 individuals into positions earning more than $12 an hour. And we’ve touched the lives of thousands more.
