Upon working for this Organization it was really a pleasant learning experience, the staff there is remarkable, helpful, loving, understanding, and will always go that extra mile to help and assist not just their employees but anyone who walks through their doors, I love them so dearly, words arent enough to describe. After my volunteering ended I did all I could to prolong my stay there where it's comforting, yet serious and rewarding career. I honestly would love to get back into the organization everyday truly was worth it. Karen Johnson, Dee Chatem, Ms. Jill, Sara in Corporate and her entire staff gave me the confidence to never give up and to this day although I'm not employeed at the moment I take in stride what they instilled in me "NEVER GIVE UP" and for that I'll be forever grateful. Thank you Goodwill of St. Paul for all the learning experiences that were provided for me and any and every volunteer that were excepted, your beautiful, beautiful, people.
