In line with encouraging philanthropy and celebrating generosity, Goodwill is participating again this year in #GivingTuesday on November 29, 2016.

On October 17, 2016, the Arkansas Department of Career Education with Arkansas Rehabilitation Services held the Arkansas Business Employment Summit, which focused on inclusion in the workplace. At the summit, Goodwill Industries of Arkansas was awarded the Distinguished Service Provider Partnership Award in appreciation of our mission of changing lives through education, training and employment and our inclusion of Arkansans with disabilities.

The winners of Goodwill’s Halloween Costume Contest were announced on social media last week. Congratulations to Melanie Madkin and Trissa Fletcher for being our Facebook and Instagram winners, respectively!

Goodwill Industries of Arkansas recently achieved the Gold GuideStar Nonprofit Profile level. GuideStar is the world’s largest source of information about nonprofit organizations and a leader in advancing transparency in the nonprofit sector. This level demonstrates Goodwill’s deep commitment to nonprofit transparency and accountability.

For some job seekers, finding appropriate and affordable business attire suitable for an interview or the workplace can be a challenge. To alleviate this problem, the Arkansas Bar Association and Goodwill Industries of Arkansas are partnering this giving season to help Arkansans dress for success.

McCain Mall is now a drop-off location for Goodwill Industries of Arkansas.
“We are thrilled to work with this incredible organization by acting as a drop-off location for the North Little Rock community,” said Lisa Meyer, mall manager at McCain Mall. “We value our role in the community and are continually looking to not only enhance our visitors’ experiences, but also offer an array of services that benefit our neighbors and mall visitors.”
