Thank you for taking the time to read this email and I hope you will consider donating to the Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries. (see below for a description) I'm in training to run the Boston Marathon on April 16th and I will look forward to your encouragement and contribution that will help give children with limited opportunities the chance to fulfill their full potential.
Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries' mission is to provide exemplary job training and related services to help individuals with disabilities and other barriers to self-sufficiency to achieve independence and dignity through work. Not charity, but a chance.
Goodwill annually serves 9,000 low-income, unemployed and underemployed adults in its job training and career services programs, and 1,000 young people in its youth services programs.
Over the years, the range of Goodwill’s work has broadened significantly. Today, Goodwill serves individuals who face a variety of barriers to self-sufficiency, such as physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities; homelessness; low educational attainment; limited job skills; and welfare dependency. Through training and work programs, career services, youth outreach, and retail and other social enterprises, Goodwill helps to equip individuals with the tools necessary to meet new challenges and create more rewarding and independent lives. Goodwill is one of the largest employers of people with disabilities in New England.
