Goodwill Hosts Classroom On Wheels

Coconut Telegraph

Goodwill Manasota recently hosted three groups of visitors from “Classroom on Wheels,” a course in adult and community enrichment offered by Sarasota County Technical Institute. The program provided an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at Goodwill Manasota and the mission behind the donated goods business. “We are always looking for opportunities to connect with those in our community, and to teach them about our mission to change lives through the power of work,” said Bob Rosinsky, president & CEO of Goodwill Manasota. “It’s important to remember that the biggest champions of Goodwill are those who donate and shop, who don’t always realize that they are helping us to place people in jobs. This is a great way to remind them of why their donations and support means so much to us – they are helping us employ family, friends and neighbors in our local community.” During the three separate visits, 102 visitors learned about the history, mission and involvement of Goodwill Manasota, and enjoyed a tour of the retail store and corporate campus.
