Goodwill Industries of Northern Illinois’ new “Let’s Go to Work!” is off and running at its Huntley store located at 11900 Kreutzer Road.
“Let’s Go to Work!” is a program that provides employment in a supportive work environment and case management to program participants. Employees will sort, bag, and label items including toys, matchbox cars, jewelry, ties, and more.
Shoppers can support this initiative by buying these bags, which range from $0.99 to $4.99, at Goodwill. Customers can also donate these items to our various locations throughout northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.
The work program is collaboration with the Pioneer Center for Human Services in McHenry. Goodwill plans to collaborate with other organizations in the future to bring the “Let’s Go to Work!” program to all communities that they reside in.
