#GivingTuesday – A Message from Jerry Davis, President & CEO of Goodwill Central Texas
Last week you gave thanks, battled crowds on Black Friday, supported Small Business Saturday, and hopefully you scored a sweet deal from the comfort of your desk on Cyber Monday. Today is #GivingTuesday and we’re offering the opportunity to be a Holiday Hero and Give the Gift of a Job.
#Giving Tuesday is a special day set aside to start a new holiday tradition: giving to a cause you believe in! We welcome your financial contributions, as well as your gently-used goods donations. With over 40 locations to drop off, we make it easy to do GOOD!
Here at Goodwill, we are relentlessly focused on a single goal: empowering people to find work. We believe the extremely high levels of unemployment for certain members of our community are unacceptable, specifically for people who have disabilities, lack education, have criminal backgrounds, or are homeless or facing homelessness.
With all the Holiday To-Do’s, it’s easy to forget about others who may be struggling — please consider adding the “gift of a job” to your shopping list.
