Palmetto Goodwill 2015 Award Winners
On May 25, 2016, Palmetto Goodwill celebrated the organization’s successes in 2015. Over the course of the year, we provided services to more than 57,000 people and placed 1,934 phentermine people into new jobs. These successes lowered unemployment, reduced costly government support services and boosted our local economy with a total economic impact of more than $31.4 million.
These numbers are impressive but it’s the inspirational stories of individuals that really matter. We celebrated many Goodwill supporters and employees but the touching stories of three individuals provide a glimpse into the power of the Goodwill mission.
