"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."  – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On Tuesday, November 3, we have the opportunity to make our voices heard and exercise our right to vote!  At Goodwill, we’re hosting voter registration drives to make sure that everyone who is eligible and interested in voting has the opportunity to cast their ballot.

In partnership with Common Power, we’ll have volunteers running registration drives at select stores across northwest Washington the first four Saturdays of October from 10 am to 1 pm and 2 pm to 5 pm.

Volunteers can help you register using paper forms or online with one of our computers or with your own mobile device.

Pete's Return to Work

August 31, 2020

Posted in: Community and Job Training & Education

For the last eight years, Pete’s work has helped Seattle Goodwill provide free job training, education programs and support services to community members in need. His work in E-Commerce allows Goodwill to continue its critical mission of helping others improve their lives and the lives of their families.
