Goodwill Industries launches solar project at its Roanoke location

The future is bright at Goodwill! ☀️ 658 newly installed solar panels at the Roanoke Goodwill Jobs Campus will keep over 221 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere. 90% of the electricity generated at the Melrose campus will be renewable energy helping us put more money toward mission programs, investing in local communities and the people we serve.

Our thanks to GJ Hopkins-Lacy, RER Energy Group, and Standard SOLAR for partnering with us to make this dream a reality!

The rooftop array of solar panels is one of the largest of its kind in the Roanoke Valley.

We're celebrating our 90th anniversary! In October 1931, the organization now known as Goodwill Industries of the Valleys was founded in the old Union Mission in Roanoke.

Mr. S.L. Thomas, was the first superintendent. He oversaw the work of 20-30 people operating a paper plant that generated about $10,000 a year. Goodwill had a cabinet and shoe shop, store, mission hall, and 32 rooms for the homeless in the three story brick building on Norfolk Avenue.

Today, we're giving out cupcakes to all our team members to celebrate the great work they do in carrying out the Goodwill mission. Cheers to another 90+ years of service to Central, Southwest, and Southside Virginia!

Remote work has finally made me — a legally-blind person — feel like I can thrive at my job. I'm sad it took this long.

October is #NationalDisabilityEmploymentAwarenessMonth. One of the many ways businesses and organizations can better accommodate workers with disabilities is to offer flexible work options like the opportunity to work remotely. #NDEAM

We came across a post this morning on Sustainable Roanoke that is such a great idea, we had to share it with all of you. Look for inexpensive pyrex dishware at Goodwill to use in place of plastic to-go containers when taking a meal to someone. "Often they are cheaper than disposable containers and the family can keep it or pass it to someone else who needs a meal in the future." #Sustainability

Our Story

“I had no idea Goodwill did all that!” is a line we hear frequently at Goodwill Industries of the Valleys. Most people are familiar with Goodwill stores, but might not know about the wide variety of programs that are funded in part through the collection and sale of donated goods.

Goodwill Industries of the Valleys is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with disabilities and disadvantages overcome barriers to employment. Goodwill programs help youth, adults, and seniors throughout Central, Southwest, and Southside Virginia empowering them to achieve their greatest potential.

Youth in under served communities who are at risk of substance abuse, teen pregnancy, school dropout, and juvenile crime participate in both a Science Camp and Club, Youth Work Experiences, and Youth Mentoring Programs.

Through Project SEARCH, high school students with disabilities receive education and on-site training that allows them to be work ready upon graduation.

I visited my local store in Madison Heights today. It is a wonderful store and we'll organized.
What is the combined salaries of the top 15 highest paid for Goodwill of the valleys?
Retail Odyssey is Hiring now in the Roanoke Valley.
A cashier at your Hunting Hills location, Cynthia, was very vocally complaining to customers in line about Door Dash this afternoon. And how her deliveries from Valley View take too long. And how she no longer tips any of her drivers because “they just keep screwing her over.” When I, behind in line, spoke up and mentioned that delivery drivers primarily make their money from tips, and that she was openly bragging about not tipping people that are driving at least 25 minutes to bring her lunch, she proudly responded “I know. That’s what they get for screwing me over.” At the end of her conversation, the ladies in front of me asked if she’d received her food from Red Robin yet, and she confirmed “I just placed the order a few minutes ago; we’ll see—“ after openly bragging about not tipping that person already, that they didn’t deserve it. Then, her supervisor came out and asked if she was ready for her break. Cynthia responded that she wasn’t in a rush and that the supervisor should go ahead and go on break. Are you kidding me? Service workers are people too, and I found her behavior and dialogue absolutely abhorrent. I thought you should know. #karentherightway
This Goodwill worker in Salem,Virginia, basically accused me of changing a price. I picked up a briefcase that was marked for $2.99. She was right near me when I picked it up. I FaceTimed someone to show them to see if they wanted it. Then went straight to the register. The lady who was working there accused me of changing the price. The sticker was not messed up or with at all. She then proceeded to tell me I picked it up in the wrong place that it is $4.00. I told her if I couldn’t afford another dollar then I might as well go home! It’s a shame a company that gets 100% profit is letting employees accuse people of theft over $1.01! Poor customer service! Shame on you! Never shopping here again!
I would like to know what the mask policy is at the Goodwill stores in Lynchburg, VA.

Hello the Plantation rd boxes have doors open with stuff falling out.
The simple truth about binary options which many of us do not know is the fact that it is mainly based on predictions. Without proper knowledge of what next can happen to the stock market, you are sure to lose your funds. That is why it is important to be tutored or mentored by a professional trader in binary options. During few days of being mentored by EL Raphael Bashir, I've learnt much and also succeeding in trades and has been doing successful withdrawals and was able to recover all my lost funds. Feel free to contact him on Email is [email protected] WhatsApp: +1(661)944-9591
