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

Michael Capezzuto

BRING JOBS HOME

When 32-year-old West Springfield resident Michael Capezzuto came to Goodwill’s Career Academy in Springfield, he had a strong desire to work, but had limited job skills and work experience to fall back on. He had worked off and on in his family’s landscaping business, but was ready for a change and was looking for full-time employment.

After participating in job-readiness training at Goodwill, Michael felt like he was ready for the next step and began looking at career options. Michael obtained a forklift operator’s license and certification at Goodwill and then, with help from the career advisors at Goodwill, secured employment at the Advanced Auto Parts’ distribution center in Enfield, Connecticut, as an associate.

Now working full-time and earning full benefits, he feels things have really turned around in his life. “When I came to Goodwill, I wasn’t working and really didn’t know what I wanted to do,” Michael said. “The staff here really helped me out and I was able to figure out some jobs I could do. Things worked out well for me.”
