Ohio Valley Goodwill was pleased to welcome members of the Perfetti Candy Company to its corporate headquarters on Monday, October 13th. The group was touring the organization’s employment and training center to learn more about its mission in the community and how donations help to put people to work. Guests were delighted to meet Joe Walter, Bengal alumni and member of Goodwill’s board of directors, who helped to facilitate the informative tour event.
The Perfetti team members enjoyed a comprehensive tour of the facility which included skill training programs; the award-winning Center for Advocacy, Recreation and Education (CARE); as well as its Veterans programs. Guests also found it informative to learn about Goodwill’s recycling efforts which diverts more than 43,000,000 lbs of donated items from area landfills each year. The group was very impressed by the tour and newly excited about the upcoming donation drive that their company is hosting during the first week of December. “Our thanks to the Perfetti team for visiting Ohio Valley Goodwill’s corporate headquarters and learning more about our vital mission of putting people to work,” said Joe Walter, Goodwill Board Member.
