Please join us at Goodwill of Silicon Valley's Palo Alto store as we once again offer this popular morning volunteer and learning opportunity. We will rotate among different volunteer stations, working in conjunction with Goodwill employees. Volunteers will assist in the retail store, with the donation drop-off team and with the sorting team, among other activities, as part of our goal to create hands-on experiences for volunteers. We'll also hear about Goodwill's wide-ranging mission and work from a Goodwill leader. This is a family-friendly event, children 12 years and older are welcome!
Goodwill of Silicon Valley (with 19 retail stores and an online store) has successfully placed over 400 veterans into employment, provided a wide array of services to veterans’ families, offered job training, counseling and job placement services to young adults within the autism spectrum, operated an After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens Program (ASSETs), delivered free mental health services to clients ranging from veterans to parolees, and diverted over 40 million pounds of goods from local landfills in their efforts to break cycles of poverty, provide job training and reduce landfill waste in the Bay Area.
