Goodwill of the Heartland coming to Mount Pleasant
Goodwill is coming to Mount Pleasant and opening its doors on July 28th! When asked how this new store will positively impact the town, Brad Watkins, Marketing Director, responded – “First, we will bring jobs. We have a hiring event planned at the new store location on Tuesday, June 20th from 3:00 – 7:00 pm and Saturday, June 24th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. We will conduct open-interview, so if you’re looking for an excellent job opportunity with good hours, good pay, and great benefits, you will want to put those dates on your calendar and plan to attend one of these events. We are looking to hire 15 – 17 full- and part-time employees.
Secondly, Goodwill’s mission is to help people reach their full potential through education, training, and the power of work. While we do hope to offer in person assistance with training programs in the future, right now, anyone in the Mt. Pleasant area can access our online training and vocational certification programs through our website: www.goodwillheartland.org. Our website has all the current information you need – not just for our job training programs, but also important information about our store hours and the things we will and won’t accept as donations.
Finally, we will partner with area human services agencies to offer vouchers for people in need who can use these vouchers to shop our stores for clothing items at no cost to them.
