Eliminating Barriers. Providing Opportunities. Strengthening Communities.
Palmetto Goodwill’s programs and services are funded through the sale of generously donated household goods and clothing in our 31 retail stores across lower South Carolina. More than 90 cents of every dollar Goodwill generates helps provide support, education and job training for members of our community.
Thanks to our wonderful donors and shoppers, in 2018 we were able to provide over 41,000 services to 15,398 unique individuals in lower South Carolina. We also helped place 3,094 people in new jobs, trained over 4,100 individuals, served 960 veterans and attained 184 national certifications for program participants!
Palmetto Goodwill continues to grow and evolve while staying true to our mission of offering sustainable employment opportunities and related support services to those in need. To that end, in the summer of 2018 Palmetto Goodwill leadership began developing a 2025 strategic plan to define and give greater focus to our efforts. The resulting plan is vetted, challenging and achievable, and establishes a well defined framework for Goodwill’s future growth, mission advancement and funding.

Our mission is to help people achieve their full potential through the dignity and power of work. We serve this mission by providing job training and employment services throughout 18 counties in lower South Carolina.
We believe every person should have an opportunity to achieve his/her fullest potential. We strive to be the primary community resource for training and employment of those seeking economic independence and improved life.
Our efforts are centered on the belief that work forms the foundations of our relationships with others. Work effects our self-esteem and allows us to become successful contributing members of our community.
