Letter to the Editor

Goodwill thanks

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Goodwill Industries of Sioux City wishes to take this opportunity to thank the many donors who contributed to the recent Ambassador drives in Lake Park and Spirit Lake. During your last Ambassador drives, community Ambassador volunteers helped to collect 17,650 pounds of donated materials in Lake Park and 33,000 pounds of donated materials in Spirit Lake. The materials will be distributed to any or all of our 16 Goodwill regional store locations.

Your next Ambassador trailer will arrive on Sept. 3 in Lake Park and on Sept. 10 in Spirit Lake.

The businesses, families, organizations and individuals who provided donated materials will help Goodwill to meet its goal for this year.

These donations will enable Goodwill to provide services to more than 200 program participants in a variety of locations. Your donations also help to provide jobs to 400 Goodwill employees in four states.

Again, we thank your community for its generosity of spirit in helping Goodwill achieve its mission. We look forward to serving you soon. Please feel free to contact me at 877-608-7775 with any questions or concerns regarding the Ambassador donation drives. If you or a group of your community would be interested in a tour of the Goodwill Central Administrative Offices and store in Sioux City, please call and ask for Georjean Bailey.

Sincerely,

Jenny Lindgren

Ambassador Assistant
