Company Profile (Mission, Vision & Values)
Donate Stuff. Shop Often, Create Jobs.
When most people hear the name “Goodwill,” they think of the stores that sell items donated by the public. But that’s only part of the larger great story of Goodwill of the Southern Alleghenies, which owns and operates 10 Goodwill Retail Stores/Donation Centers, and 5 Donation Sites, in a 6.5-county area. The lesser-known, but very critical role that Goodwill plays is to provide job training, employment support, and rehabilitation services to individuals with disadvantages and disabilities, dislocated workers, youth, and other job seekers.
And the greatest financial support for these in-demand services comes from the role for which the Goodwill name is best known − the sale of donated goods. Goodwill directs revenue generated from the sale of donated items into community services and programs in Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Huntingdon, Indiana, Somerset, and portions of Westmoreland.
Goodwill of the Southern Alleghenies (formerly Goodwill Industries of the Conemaugh Valley, incorporated in Johnstown, Pennsylvania in December 1962) is an independent nonprofit organization to empower people who have barriers to employment.
