Evergreen Goodwill Partners with Local Employers to Host Event Connecting Community Members with Job Opportunities and Recourses
On Jan. 26, Evergreen Goodwill is partnering with local employers like Starbucks, Delta Air Lines and T-Mobile to connect job seekers with opportunities and employment support during a Community Hiring & Resource Fair. Translation services, resume and interview support will also be provided by Evergreen Goodwill.
“Every purchase helps fund the programs that provide people across the region with education and workforce skills. And what better time to give back to your communities and be intentional about your shopping than over the holidays?”
Check out some SPOOKtacular, thrifted Halloween costumes put together by Evergreen Goodwill's DIY Guy Gary Foy for the hosts of KING 5 Evening.
“Especially in this economy, you want to take classes to help promote and build on what you know. At Goodwill, that’s what we offer. We offer it for free and thousands of people go through it every year.” - Gary Foy, Evergreen Goodwill
We were thrilled to have the opportunity to show off some unique, thrifted Halloween costume looks on FOX 13's Good Day Seattle.
Spooky season may be upon us, but there’s nothing scary about supporting our mission to break down barriers to education and employment! We were thrilled to be able to showcase on New Day NW a handful of the endless possibilities shopping at Goodwill this Halloween can have.
Our Whatcom County Job Training & Education Center in Bellingham proudly hosted a job and resource fair with a keen focus on connecting immigrant and refugee populations to jobs and resources available in the community.
"Evergreen Goodwill’s mission is to break down significant barriers to education and employment people in the community face. The organization fulfills this mission in a variety of ways, including offering basic instruction on how to use computers and smartphones, cloud computing and applications like Microsoft Word and Excel and Google Docs and Sheets."
"On Monday, July 19, leaders from Evergreen Goodwill and Comcast, as well as community members and students gathered to celebrate the opening of an enhanced Lift Zone and Community Space, where anyone can access reliable internet and computers. The space is located at Evergreen Goodwill’s King County Job Training and Education Center, at 700 Dearborn Place South in Seattle."
