About Goodwill: Goodwill is a non-profit organization whose primary mission is to help people improve their lives through the power of a job. When you shop and donate to Goodwill, you help us provide local jobs and training to people in need in North Louisiana! By helping people become independent, Goodwill not only changes lives, but reduces the need for public assistance, which lowers taxes for everyone. And a stronger, more diverse workforce stimulates our economy through increased tax revenue and sales. Add the environmental benefits and it’s a WIN-WIN-WIN with Goodwill!
