Show #32: Goodwill Industries
_Tim and Stacy talk with Jim Lynch of the Central Illinois Goodwill Industries. Goodwill's nine nonprofit retail stores and four donation centers are the face of Goodwill to Central Illinois. There's even an online auction site - shopgoodwill.com - for collectibles, antiques and other high-end items. It's a business model that's worked for generations. Donors provide gently used items they no longer want or need. Shoppers purchase quality merchandise at affordable prices. And the revenue generated goes to train adults for employment, prepare young people for life and work, and help veterans readjust to civilian life. Plus, our stores, donation centers and warehouse provide jobs - and on-the-job training - for more than 200 individuals in the community. Shop and donate with confidence. More than 92 percent of the proceeds for our stores stays right here in Central Illinois.
