Our Story

Goodwill Industries of Northwest Texas has operated with the mission of creating job opportunities for people with barriers to employment since it first opened in 1967. Goodwill provides free computer skills courses and job training services to the public through the Training, Placement and Life Skills (T-PALS) Program. Funding for the organization is received through grant funding from private foundations and retail operations.

When our supporters donate and/or shop at their local Goodwill, they are becoming a job creator for people in their community. Profits are used locally to fund job training programs at no charge to people with barriers to employment who live in the community.

We also practice our mission internally, hiring people with all abilities to help transform their lives through the Power of Work. For example, our Document Destruction Services Team employs individuals with one or more documented disability and those individuals work at least 75 percent of the total hours comprised in that department.

hey y'all at Goodwill of Northwest Texas! Just checking in - have you fixed your bedbug problem yet? Last I heard you didn't spray incoming goods for bedbugs, putting all of your employees and customers at risk! I am aware you're not legally required to do so, but there's a difference between legality and morality. I talked with your CEO and he never called me back. Cool let me know, don't just delete this because you don't want to deal with it!
It’s so good to hear from you on Facebook! I would like to invite you to follow the Extra Credit page to see future acknowledgements of merchants and learn more about the nonprofits they support.
You never know what you will find when shopping at our Pound store - last chance items sold by the pound or as marked. Use your 10% discount on Mondays for Seniors, Tuesday for Military and Wednesdays for Students. Come in and browse our bins! #GoodwillFinds
We need your group help? We are planning to be working with homeless people at our Health Fair and we humbly asking for you to join us?
Hi Goodwill Industries of Northwest Texas, do you still have a bedbug problem or have you started spraying in your stores? I'm just checking in because I Have gotten no response yet. Thank you !
I found bed bugs on a couch at a Lubbock location. I notified an employee and was told that they made the decision to stop spraying incoming furniture. I then called the organization headquarters and spoke with the CEO. She was aware of the decision made & supported their choice. While within the letter of the law, choosing to not spray incoming furniture is negligent and a major health hazard to Goodwill’s customers and employees. The employee I spoke with told me that he and several other folks there have bed bugs at home. I was told the issue “would be looked into” but the ceo didn’t seem to understand the gravity and importance of doing the bare minimum to protect their customers and employees. I doubt anything will be done without pressure from us.
