Goodwill Celebrates 50th Anniversary
Goodwill celebrated the Grand Opening of their donation center at 5775 E. Broadway, Tucson in March and is hosting Connecting Tucson on April 18 where tickets for a raffle sponsored by The Jim Click Automotive Team will be on sale. The raffle is for one of only 1,964, 2015 Ford Mustangs, 50th Anniversary Edition. Tickets are $25 or five for $100 with an entry deadline of November 6, 2015. The drawing will be held on November 13. The winner need not be present to win.
Goodwill of Southern Arizona funds and operates five adult programs, five youth programs and supports over 500 full-time jobs. All Goodwill retail locations and donation centers are green oriented and donating and shopping there has a positive impact on the environment. Support Goodwill provides a three-fold return. Shoppers win with affordably priced items, the community wins with Goodwill’s educational and career goals programs, and southern Arizona wins because it gets less items dumped in landfills. In fact, last year, they were able to keep more than 24 million pounds out of the landfill.
The sale of generously donated items from retail stores and donation centers allows Goodwill Industries of Southern Arizona to provide training, services, and jobs for people. Ninety cents of every dollar Goodwill spends goes towards their mission and they employ over 500 people in Southern Arizona.
