Goodwill Chattanooga Celebrates 100 Years and Shares Future Plans with East Brainerd Kiwanis Club

Goodwill Industries has been a vital part of the Chattanooga community for over a century, creating jobs during the Great Depression and continuing to support individuals in need. Recently, the East Brainerd Kiwanis Club had the pleasure of hosting Cindy Todd, the CEO of Goodwill Industries Chattanooga, to discuss the organization's history, success, and future.

The presentation began with an overview of Goodwill's history in Chattanooga, including pictures from the Great Depression that showcased Goodwill's work in creating jobs and providing services to those in need. Cindy Todd then discussed Goodwill's recent 100-year anniversary celebration and the organization's continued efforts to make a positive impact in the community.

The Job Connection center was also highlighted as a recent success story, training individuals with essential skillsets to re-enter the workforce. But Goodwill's vision for the future extends beyond the Job Connection center. The Goodwill Opportunity Campus is a massive project currently under construction that will train individuals with a wider range of skillsets, preparing them for the evolving demands of the workforce.

The presentation was followed by a Q&A session, where Kiwanis members expressed their enthusiasm and support for Goodwill's ongoing efforts in the community. As a non-profit organization dedicated to making a difference, the East Brainerd Kiwanis Club is proud to collaborate with Goodwill Industries Chattanooga in promoting positive change and growth.

By hosting informative and engaging events like Cindy Todd's presentation, the East Brainerd Kiwanis Club continues to highlight the incredible work being done by local non-profit organizations.
