Today, we wore our favorite Hawkeye and Cyclone gear at our team tailgate party! Although we had a few rebels wear other teams, :p we enjoyed plenty of playful banter about our favorite college football rivalries, great food, and played a few team-building games!

We're incredibly thankful to our Director of Mission Services, Soneeta, for her work and dedication to our invaluable training programs and resources. She leads with compassion and does not back down from a good challenge. Thanks, Soneeta, for bringing more good to Goodwill!

β€œA lot of people think about Goodwill of Central Iowa as just the stores but Goodwill's entire mission is to serve people with barriers and help them find and maintain employment.

The stores support our mission β€” people donate to the stores, we sell those, and then that profit goes to supporting the mission. My job as the director of mission services is to oversee all of the programming that we do. We have two sides that we do β€” day services, which is people with disabilities in a program where they're learning skills, working in the community, volunteering in the community, and we have instructors that do that with them. And then we have skills training. We have a retail skills training program for people with barriers to employment to train them on retail skills. We also help them find employment in their chosen career.

We have several other programs in the pipeline including a warehouse logistics program that's going to be starting back up in September.

It’s important to support people with barriers to employment, people with disabilities, people that have been long term unemployed, and people with criminal histories. Goodwill helps with that. It's really important to get people working and to maintain their jobs so that they can be productive members of their community, to reach their goals and become self-sustainable.” bit.ly/thriving-workforce

It's #football season so stock up on your favorite team colors or donate your old shirt to make room for a new style. Either way, we're a one-stop shop for both! Happy thrifting and go... team! ;) We'll stay out of that #cyhawk debate for now...

A huge shout out to Ashley for being a rockstar trainer for our retail skills and certification program. Thank you for all that you do!

β€œI’m the retail skills trainer at Goodwill of Central Iowa. Our mission is to support individuals who face barriers by helping them with employment. Goodwill does a really good job of that.

We are partnered with the National Retail Foundation and offer a six week course to gain a credential and certificate to help boost them up in the hiring process to be able to obtain employment.

Barriers to employment include those with mental health issues, perhaps have an intellectual disability, and we have some veterans who maybe haven't worked in quite some time. This program really allows them to just slowly get back into the workplace and to get up every day to do some hands-on training.

The public sees the work being done in our retail stores but programs like these really support our individuals and we make every effort to help them become employed. We then continue that support whether that be through job coaching or just calling them to check in and see how they're doing.” bit.ly/thriving-workforce

Have a passion for thrifting? Reseller Amber has taken thrifting to a whole new level! She first started her first reselling business as a child when she would invite her younger brothers into her β€œstore” (bedroom) and sell them her old toys. While that was quickly shut down by her parents, she has picked it back up in the past couple of years by reselling thrift store finds. She uses her profits to pay for her Master of Business Administration degree at Drake University.

Learn the top five tips for starting to resell from Amber herself: https://bit.ly/goodwillresellingtips
