“This isn’t my first job in the United States, but this is the first job that I really like." – Aida
This is a special milestone for Aida, who works in customer service at our Lynnwood nonprofit thrift store. She recently celebrated her 35th anniversary with Evergreen Goodwill! Building morale, creating a sense of camaraderie and setting the example for customer service excellence are Aida's specialties.

We’re excited to put the spotlight on our brand new Digital Equity Bus, Evergreen Goodwill’s first high-tech mobile classroom.
The bus will bring our Job Training and Education (JTE) computer courses, workforce development programs and wraparound support services directly to rural and historically under-resourced communities across Northwest Washington.
Evergreen Goodwill of Northwest Washington has been committed to helping bridge the "digital divide" within the communities we serve through our vital Job Training and Education Programs and services. We do this by bringing digital literacy to the forefront of many of the courses and programs we offer, as well as by helping people in the community gain access to the internet and various forms of technology.
