2020 RECAP

For Almost 100 years, Goodwill has passionately advocated for the inclusion and success of those society tends to overlook. We see their value, their potential, and their passion to better themselves.

Proceeds from THE LUNCH fund Goodwill’s Workforce Development Programs, providing a wide range of assessment, education, job training, and career placement services. Changing lives, one job at a time.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we made the difficult decision to cancel THE LUNCH 2020. At risk of losing the critical funding for our programs typically received at THE LUNCH, we turned our efforts to North Texas Giving day and were met with overwhelming generosity from our community. Thanks to friends old and new, we are so grateful to announce that we reached our goal, raising over $1 million to help North Texans move forward. We are honored to be a part of efforts that ensure those in need continue to be served during this critical time. Thank you to all who gave online and joined us for Good Drives across the metroplex!
