While the following mission statement and values were found on the Goodwill Industries of Central Iowa website, in a way, they represent the values of Goodwill Industries all over the country. It’s these values that they try to live up to and pass on to the public that have made Goodwill Industries a success over the last 100 years.
The mission statement reads as follows: To empower individuals and families with barriers to independence through training, education and employment.
This is really what Goodwill Industries is all about – job training, job placement and education in general. They try to give a “hand up” instead of a “handout.” In today’s world, teaching people to be self-sufficient and not rely on the government is an important thing, more important than ever before.
The values they try to follow are: partnership, respect, advocacy, innovation, stewardship, and ethics.
These are all great values that represent what Rev. Edgar Helms was trying to start in this country over 100 years ago. It’s good to know they’re still alive and well today as Goodwill Industries tries to live up to these values and instill them in people from all over.
As mentioned, this mission statement and list of values came from the Goodwill Industries of Central Iowa website, but they’re important no matter where you live. To help them live up to their mission and values, they need your help. The idea started with donations and donations are still the driving force behind Goodwill Industries being able to help people all over the country.
Whether you donate clothes or donate a car, your donation will be used to directly and indirectly help people in your community. If helping people isn’t part of your personal mission statement, it should be. Donating a vehicle can go a long way in helping people who need help the most and are willing to work for a better life.
