This outreach is part of Goodwill's effort to celebrate veterans throughout the month of November.

Goodwill's Bridgette Outten says their mission is to "help individuals with disabilities or disadvantages here in our community to secure sustainable employment through education, training, work experience and career placement services."

All of these programs, including job fairs, are made possible through your donations of gently used clothing and household goods that are sold at Goodwill Retail Stores.
