Goodwill Manasota reported record-breaking numbers for 2014, thanks to an increase in donations, expansion of services and an increasing number of shoppers who visit Goodwill stores throughout Manatee, Sarasota, Hardee and DeSoto counties. Last year, Goodwill Manasota assisted 16,000 individuals through training, services and programs, and placed 680 people in jobs throughout the region. The Veterans Services Program assisted 520 veterans, in part due to an increase in staff, funding and support from the local community. The Supported JobsPlus Program surpassed a milestone of 100 jobs created for individuals with significant disabilities. Approximately 39 million pounds were diverted from local landfills through donations and resale, and partnerships with “green waste” disposal experts. Goodwill Manasota continues to have an economic impact of $81.3 million as an industry-leading nonprofit organization.
