Suit Yourself Open House – May 9th

Through donations, sponsorships and sales in Goodwill stores, innovative programs like Suit Yourself, Soft Skills Workshop, Business 101: The Popcorn Wagon, Business 101: Spot on Cleaning provide people with valuable job experience, adding skills to their resumes including retail merchandising, warehousing, technology recycling, office skills, time management, teamwork and customer service.
