Letter from the CEO

It's hard to believe another year has come to an end. The dedication and hard work from our employees and continued support from the community have helped make 2019 another remarkable year at Goodwill. We continued our recycling efforts through the Neighborhood Challenge, donation drives, unattended donation bins and our home pick-up program. We once again partnered with Gateway Mall for Halloween, bringing crafts and DIY ideas to the community. Job Connection worked for the third year to connect people with job skills and training and we are excited for its continual growth in serving the community with employment services and programs. All of which we accomplished this year was guided by our mission of "Willing workers employed and community resources maximized." As I look back at 2019, I am grateful to be a part of this thriving agency and am eager to see what the upcoming year has to offer.Thank you to each and every one of you that has supported our agency. The work of Goodwill is made possible because of you. Joanne Pickrel, CEO

JOB CONNECTION

Neighborhood Challenge

Goodwill’s Job Connection, located inside their current retail location, provides an open computer lab and staff available to assist individuals with online job searches, creating resumes, cover letters, and job training skills and resources. This year they celebrated their 3 year anniversary and were able to serve 166 individuals and provided 476 units of servicethrough this program. Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska is excited to watch this program continue to grow and strengthen the Lincoln community.

HALLOWEEN WITH GATEWAY

For the second year, Lincoln Goodwill partnered with Gateway Mall for Halloween. They held a Make+Take workshop where guests glued crayons onto pumpkins and used a blow dryer to melt the crayons for a twist on the traditional carved Jack ‘O Lantern. All the materials used to decorate the pumpkins were collected from donated materials.In addition, they held a DIY pet costume contest, where dogs came dressed up in their cutest costumes from a golden retriever goldfish to labs dressed as the solar system. The mall patrons loved the puppers and gathered to watch them and their owners show off their costumes. Goodwill also took part in Gateway’s annual trick-or-treat event by collecting donated reusable totes for the 2,400+ guests. Each tote was marked with a hangtag which provided information about Goodwill’s mission and sustainability. During trick-or-treating, they held a DIY costume contest for attendees to show off their costumes and win prizes. Gateway continues to be a successful partnership that Goodwill looks forward to continuing year after year.

SUMMER DONATIONS

Goodwill’s programs are funded through revenue from donations and convenient donation options continue to grow. Goodwill was able to host 21 donation drives throughout the year. These drives collected a total of 120,066 pounds of donations. The donation bins located throughout Lincoln and York collected 160,666 pounds. Additionally, home pick-ups increased by 73 pickups from 2018 and the number continues to grow each year. In total, 1,113 pickups were completed. Whether sold or recycled, every donation is important and helps Goodwill achieve its mission, “Willing workers employed, and community resources maximized.”

NEIGHBORHOOD CHALLENGE

Beginning in April, Lincoln Goodwill held its seventh annual Neighborhood Challenge. The four-month event provides neighborhoods in the Lincoln community a convenient donation location to bring leftover items from their garage sales and cleanups. The top three neighborhoods that collect the most pounds in donations receive a cash prize to invest back into the community projects of their choosing. Nine neighborhoods participated and collectively donated over 18,000 pounds of clothing, furniture, home goods and electronics to Goodwill. The first place was awarded to the Highlands Neighborhood Association. The Wellington Greens Homeowners Association and Witherbee Neighborhood Association followed as 2nd and 3rd, respectively. Since the launch of the Neighborhood Challenge, Goodwill Industries has collected a total of 136,590 pounds!
