The Goodwill Service Guild operates the Treasure Island Gift Shop inside the Woodlawn retail store. The mission of the Service Guild is to help make the public aware of Goodwill’s vocational training and job placement efforts and to support the organization’s mission. This year’s Spring Mini-Fest takes place during the 100th anniversary celebration of Ohio Valley Goodwill and serves to close the National Goodwill Week celebration. All proceeds from the festival will help to support Goodwill’s programs and services for men and women with disabilities.
Ohio Valley Goodwill is grateful to the Goodwill Service Guild for their more than 80 year tradition of supporting the organization and its mission of service to the Greater Cincinnati community. It is due in part to their dedication and generosity over the years that Ohio Valley Goodwill has grown to be one of the largest employment and training centers in Southwest Ohio. It is through the on-going support of the Greater Cincinnati community that Goodwill is able to continue its critical mission of putting people to work after 100 years.
Bring the family and enjoy the fun at the Guild’s Spring Mini-Fest on May 6th and 7th and help support Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries!
Watch for a wonderful story about the Guild and its group of dedicated volunteers coming soon…
