Why Goodwill Celebrates Employment Success on Labor Day and Every Day!

Happy Labor Day! Today’s a day we pause to celebrate and recognize the hard work and achievement of America’s workers, who contribute to the economic health and vitality of our country.

Working provides a way to earn a living, as well as a sense of purpose, fulfillment, and belonging. But all too often, we tend to take these benefits of employment for granted. Millions of job seekers who are willing and able to work are continually left out of the workforce because of harmful stereotypes, a lack of access to training or workplace supports, and other barriers to employment.

We put people to work!

At Ohio Valley Goodwill, our entire mission is based on breaking down these barriers to help local job seekers achieve personal and vocational success “”  and you can help!

Every time you shop at your local Ohio Valley Goodwill retail store or donate your gently-used clothes and household goods, you’re supporting Goodwill’s 100+ year mission to change lives through the power of work. Your generous donations and Goodwill purchases are transformed into programs and services including job skills training, career coaching, worksite supports, and other related employment services to help individuals with disabilities and veterans find, obtain, and maintain meaningful employment right here in Greater Cincinnati. It’s all a part of Goodwill’s cycle of success made possible by people like you!
