“If you fall or stumble, don’t let that just drag you down.” – Sonia
“Don’t let your past define you because it doesn’t.” – Tasha
Sonia and Tasha, two employees at our Silverdale nonprofit thrift store, have found great strength within their friendship that began shortly after joining the Evergreen Goodwill team and learning how closely their life stories align. They both hope their words will inspire and encourage others who come from similar backgrounds.
Rest assured that no matter what you donate to Goodwill, we will make every effort to give your treasures new life and purpose. This is our commitment to sustainability – but we can’t do it alone! Evergreen Goodwill works closely with several community organizations and government agencies to help reduce waste and keep items out of landfills.
Through the support of generous donors and shoppers who choose to go treasure hunting at Goodwill, we were able to save more than 76 million pounds of materials from local landfills just last year alone! At Evergreen Goodwill, we are all about reducing waste and playing our part in helping the environment.
When you choose to shop at or donate to Evergreen Goodwill, you're not only helping to reduce waste and keep materials out of local landfills, but you're also giving back to the community by helping to break down barriers to education and employment. We call this 360° of Sustainability.
“I love what I do.” – Katy
It’s been 18 years since Katy, a retail assistant manager, walked into her hometown Goodwill looking for a job. Little did she know at the time, that opportunity would transform into a flourishing career that has led to countless personal and professional successes.
