Each year, Goodwill Central Texas honors people in our community who are transforming their lives through education and work. This year, at our 22nd Annual Hall of Honor, we celebrated six outstanding individuals in our community and a dedicated business partner who exemplifies our mission of generating lifelong connections to work. The Grand Ballroom at The JW Marriott was filled with 600 attendees, joining us to honor our 2017 inductees, and what a great success!
With such a low unemployment rate and strong local economy here in Central Texas, getting people connected with work – even 100,000 people – seems like an easy prospect, right?
Shop, shop, shop, is all we’re hearing, with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday back-to-back! But on December 1 – #Giving Tuesday – you can take a step back from all that shopping and make a real difference in our Central Texas community. #GivingTuesday was created with the simple idea of dedicating a day to thinking about others in the midst of the hectic holiday season. Now’s your chance to give a lasting gift!
