In these challenging times, we continue our commitment to individuals and families in our community and we are grateful for the support we have received from so many. Effective March 19, 2020, we are temporarily closing our stores and donation sites in Massachusetts until April 7. We will need your donations of clothing and household goods when we reopen so please hold onto them until then. Last year we served more than 6,300 people through job training, career services, and programs for young adults and we know the demand will be much greater in the months ahead. Please consider making a financial donation at www.goodwillmass.org/giving to allow us to continue to deliver our critical mission services. We truly appreciate your continued commitment to Goodwill and the people we serve.

Success Stories

Mission: Jobs

When Chrissy Baneky has a job to do, it’s best not to get in her way.

The energetic Chrissy likes her customers at the Wegmans in Westwood to be happy. “I have a lot to do before lunchtime,” said Chrissy, who works as a café assistant. “I want to make sure everything looks good and the tables are clean. How else are people going to eat!?”

Chrissy, a Hyde Park resident, is a graduate of Goodwill’s Will to Work program, which is designed to help young adults with disabilities obtain competitive employment. The program focuses on skill development, job readiness, and career exploration. Chrissy has always been interested in restaurants and food services so the position at Wegmans has been a good fit.

“I like getting the experience,” she says, adding that her “dream job” is to someday work at a restaurant.

Though Chrissy has graduated from Will to Work, Goodwill offers extended support post job placement and checks in with her and her employer on a regular basis. These check-ins could include transportation assistance, retention counseling, and job coaching.

They needn’t check in on whether the tables are clean though – Chrissy is on top of that.
