During this season of Thanksgiving, your local Goodwill is grateful for your support. Community generosity becomes Goodwill's power to build lives, families and communities - one job at a time. On behalf of the thousands Goodwill has served since 1975, I thank you for giving. On behalf of the thousands remaining who need our help, I ask for your continued investment.
Driving your donations of household items and clothing to Goodwill Industries, donating a car you no longer need or mailing in a tax-deductible Thanksgiving contribution will help us continue to give a hand-up to those who want to work and experience the pride and dignity of a paycheck. Everyone in our community deserves this opportunity.
As you count your own blessings, thanks for reaching out to others through your local Goodwill.
James K. Stiff, Macon, Ga.
