Our mission is to help individuals with barriers to self-sufficiency to achieve independence and dignity through work. Not charity, but a chance.

Success Stories

Mission: Community Engaged

Goodwill relies on partnerships with businesses, foundations, and community organizations to advance its mission. The list of organizations is long. Some send volunteers. Some hire job trainees. Some work with mobile crews. Some donate funds. Some donate clothing or household items.

Among these, TJX stands out because of the depth and breadth of its engagement and its demonstrated commitment to making the community a better place. Beyond providing financial support, TJX associates actively support Goodwill and volunteer at Goodwill events. In addition, a member of the TJX leadership team serves on the Goodwill Board of Directors.

TJX also supports Goodwill through the donation of product samples. Each month, Goodwill picks up samples of items you might see in a T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods, or Sierra Trading Post and ships them to The Goodwill Stores. A typical donation could include clothing as well as household items such as lamps, bedding, or towels – all items needed by Goodwill clientele. Customers are always thrilled to find these exciting and fashionable samples.

“Our partnership with TJX is exemplary and it is multi-dimensional,” said Joanne Hilferty, President and CEO of Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries. “Their support touches so many aspects of our mission services.”

TJX has truly made a difference for people in need and has enhanced Goodwill’s ability to serve the community.
