Mission Statement

Goodwill empowers people to discover their potential and adapt for the future through the power of work.

Description

Good is a renewable resource. It takes on many forms, and often comes from unexpected places. Even one small act of good can make a big difference.

For instance: an unassuming bag of stuff that has the power to change lives. When you donate to Goodwill, your stuff gets a second act in another person's life - instead of lying in a landfill. But the good doesn't stop there.

Sales of your stuff fund our employment programs and services, where local job seekers get the skills and confidence they need to find gainful employment. But the good doesn't stop there...

Employment is more than a paycheck - it's a resounding victory: for the individual, for their family, for their community. When jobs thrive, communities thrive.

We know this because we've seen and celebrated it here for more than a century. It's real sustainable change that all starts with one person. When you do a little good, you might be surprised at how far it goes.

Join us in giving your time to Goodwill of Western Missouri & Eastern Kansas. You'll be glad you did.
