GROWTH 2015 ANNUAL REPORT PLANTING SEEDS FOR We Create Hope Jobs Futures in our Community OUR VISION Everyone with challenges who wants to work will have a meaningful job that enhances self-worth OUR MISSION There are certain events that imprint on our minds getting our drivers license graduating at any educational level moving for the first time as an adult viewing a particularly emotional movie starting our first job. For some who are overly anxious about the normal events in their lives it can be difficult when everywhere they look theres a new sight to take in new people to meet and even a new industry to learn. Each event we experience in life starts with a seed being planted. Starting my work career over sixty years ago on a farm in central Nebraska I am keenly aware of the importance of preparing the soil planting the seed nurturing the plant cultivating the weeds relying on nature and harvesting the seed. When I was seven years old following supper I walked a half mile into the dark and cool spring evening to the sound of a tractor and plow operated by my father. He was taking the first steps to prepare the ground for planting corn later that month. As he made the turn at the end of the field the headlights of the tractor struck my small image and Dad stopped to pick me up and place me on the seat in front of him and off we went down the field. Over sixty years have passed since that event yet the preparation planting and harvesting of seeds has been a part of my life since. Seeds were planted as I was educated made friends started my forty five year marriage with Theresa raised our sons and worked in the social service field. Over the past thirty six years I have been a part of a team of dedicated farmers who have planted thousands of seeds and influenced the harvest of thousands of people. The staff has carefully prepared the seedbed using their educational and experiential skills. They have nourished the seed and keep the weeds from harming it. They have cheered when harvest time came. This annual report talks about the planting nurturing and harvesting of hundreds of seeds during 2015. Please take a few minutes to read the stories and know that just as a farmer must annually prepare the ground for new seeds the Goodwill staff continues to plant seeds daily. Dan Kurtenbach President CEO Mike McMullin Chairman of the Board of Directors DONT JUDGE EACH DAY BY THE HARVEST YOU REAP BUT BY THE SEEDS THAT YOU PLANT. Robert Louis Stevenson THE POWER 2015 OF WORK AWARDS Because Jobs Change Lives GRADUATE OF THE YEAR Patrick Leasure Patrick Leasure sits perched atop a 65000 floor scrubber carefully maneuvering between the pallets of merchandise bound for destinations throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Hes all business ensuring he keeps an eye out for any inattentive co-worker who may wander into the path of the behemoth hes been tasked with keeping on course. This is his job and hes good at it. Hired by Costco in June of 2014 Patricks entry-level position at the Distribution Center in Monrovia was initially that of a Sweeper an apt title for position responsible with sweeping out recently emptied trailers. It is a mundane job but a necessary one and Patrick took it seriously. He quickly demonstrated that he was ready to accept additional responsibilities and within a few weeks was moving full pallets with a pallet jack. His initiative was apparent with his supervisors and within two months of being hired Patrick was being trained on one of the floor scrubbing machines. He enjoys his job and is focused and thorough. Patrick is well-liked at work and looks forward to taking on additional responsibilities including operating the larger battery-operated pallet jack and perhaps even a fork lift. VOLUNTEER PARTNER OF THE YEAR EMPLOYER OF THE YEAR COMMUNITY PARTNER OF THE YEAR In early Spring of 2015 during planting season Goodwills relationship with SERRV International was cultivated resulting in a mutually beneficial partnership. With efforts to plant the seeds with Goodwill job seekers by giving them opportunities for skill advancement and vocational exploration SERRV offered a seedbed for program participants to begin volunteering twice weekly at their Westminster location. SERRV is a nonprofit fair trade organization dedicated to lifting disadvantaged artisans farmers and their families out of poverty. They literally and figuratively plant seed. SERVV creates a wonderful opportunity to maintain their connectedness to a small business that benefits the community worldwide. Goodwill first began partnering with Transitions Oakland Manor in Sykesville in the beginning of 2015 to assist them with filling job vacancies and providing work experience opportunities for job seekers. After the first successful placement of a client into their kitchen department Goodwill was able to continue providing several candidates into their program. Some of the candidates were offered permanent employment. Transitions management staff has gone well above the norm to train and educate Goodwill job seekers to acquire specific industry based skills. Goodwill is grateful to be working with such an employment impacting business. Lowes offered a seasonal part-time position to a job seeker receiving services for Goodwills Mission Services program. The newly hired employee was able to gain additional skillsets that eventually led to an opportunity for advancement into a full-time position in Lowes garden department where planting and caring for seeds continued our theme. Planting the seedbed for a meaningful partnership Lowes management team and Goodwills job development team began to explore additional opportunities for placing qualified job seekers into positions at Lowes. The partnership between Lowes and Goodwill continues to prosper to the benefit of many job seekers. 2015 COMMUNITY IMPACT 445 5960 5142002 607061 344197 104 4177887 PEOPLE WERE EMPLOYED BY GOODWILL PAYCHECKS ISSUED BY GOODWILL GOODWILL PAID IN TOTAL WAGES FOR EMPLOYEES TRANSACTIONS MADE IN GOODWILL STORES WHICH FUND PROGRAMS THAT PUT PEOPLE TO WORK COMMUNITY PARTNERS HOSTED DONATION COLLECTION SITES POUNDS OF HOUSEHOLD ITEMS DIVERTED FROM LOCAL LANDFILLS DONOR TRANSACTIONS Goodwill At Your Door is a unique program for neighborhoods and homeowner associations to donate unwanted items on a monthly basis to your local Goodwill via a pick-up service.
