Goodwill Industries International along with Ohio Valley Goodwill in the Greater Cincinnati community celebrates National Thrift Shop Day on August 17th and encourages people to shop at Goodwill to do more than just snag great deals. With each purchase at Goodwill, shoppers contribute to programs that provide education, skills training and career development which help people earn jobs in communities nationwide.
Shopping at Goodwill helps the economy, as it contributes to the mission of providing important social services for people who are struggling to find employment. Local Goodwill agencies meet the needs of job seekers through a variety of workforce development offerings, including programs for youth, veterans, as well as people with disabilities and other disadvantages creating barriers to employment.
