We know that partnerships can pack a powerful punch when it comes to problem-solving and providing human services.
We partner with employers. government agencies, community colleges, other non-profits and supporters in the community to fulfill our mission.
A listing of many of our partners can be found here, and below are features on some of our valuable partnerships.
The F.R.E.E. Foundation helps adults achieve independence through mobility,
When Goodwill receives mobility equipment, we give it to FREE, whose volunteers sanitize, repair and distribute it free of charge to uninsured and under-insured adults. In fact, we share our donated goods production space with FREE at our Richmond Support Center, and we work with FREE in Williamsburg and Hampton Roads. The community donates the goods, we transport it to FREE, and FREE gets it to those in need.
Shared Knowledge Group Literacy Foundation
The Shared Knowledge Group Literacy Foundation partners with Goodwill to
re-distribute and re-sell books in support of its mission to strengthen literacy among youth, and it boosts Goodwill’s mission of creating pathways to opportunities for job seekers. SharedKnowledge sorts through our surplus books and re-sells those that may have a market-value online, and shares the proceeds with Goodwill. We’ve got the goods, they’ve got the manpower, and together we’re making our communities stronger.
