With the start of tax season, Goodwill wants to help Arkansans keep more money in their pockets. For a second year, Goodwill Industries of Arkansas, in cooperation with the Central Arkansas Development Council (CADC) Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), will offer free tax preparation to eligible individuals and families in Little Rock.
This year, Goodwill Industries of Arkansas is celebrating 90 years of changing lives through education, training and employment. A not-for-profit organization, Goodwill is devoted to providing opportunities to Arkansans seeking a hand-up.
Goodwill Industries of Arkansas is pleased to announce its newest board member. Jeremy Owoh of Jacksonville North Pulaski School District has been appointed to serve on its Board of Directors. For 90 years, Goodwill Industries of Arkansas has been providing career-readiness education and training, employment and support services to Arkansans. Goodwill’s Board of Directors help to set policy and formulate governance issues and procedures for the organization.
The Goodwill store in Little Rock will come to life with the sounds of The William Staggers Trio. The music trio is led by William Staggers (keyboardist and vocalist), Eric Ware (guitarist and vocalist), and Quintin Stephens (percussionist/drummer).
The holiday season is the perfect time to gather items you no longer need and give them to Goodwill. Giving to Goodwill during this season allows donors to help others and receive a tax break at the same time. Donors bringing their gently used items or a monetary gift to Goodwill Industries of Arkansas by December 31 will receive a tax deduction for 2016.
In line with encouraging philanthropy and celebrating generosity, Goodwill is participating again this year in #GivingTuesday on November 29, 2016.
