The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY SEP 30, 2020

In order to help community members who are looking to enhance their skills and earn a better, more livable wage, Goodwill Manasota has enabled security guard training through generous funding from the Evans Family Charitable Fund of the Manatee Community Foundation. “With licensure, certification and employment in a growth industry, our hope is that participants are able to break the cycle of poverty for their families,” said Goodwill vice president Margie Genter. “Increasing financial stability results in an increased likelihood of continued advancement as well as other benefits such as becoming banked, enjoying more stable housing, better nutrition, and so much more. We are grateful to Manatee Community Foundation for investing in this pilot program.”
