The donations made by you and your neighbors make it possible for us to employ about 270, including more than 130 with disabilities. Your donations are turned into items for re-sale in our stores, on our internet sales site or recycled in other parts of the world. Profits from those sales go to further our mission of improving the quality of life and job opportunities for those with disabilities or disadvantages.

In 2016, we were able to place 180 individuals into jobs in addition to the ones we employ ourselves.

This Goodwill, like all others across the nation and globe, are affiliated with Goodwill Industries International, but is governed by its own board of trustees and managed by local people. It started in 1959 as part of the Goodwill in Columbus, but became a separate entity in September 1977.

Over the years, we grew from serving just Ross County to providing services and having locations in all eight of our counties, the others being Pike, Pickaway, Jackson, Fayette, Vinton, Athens and Hocking.

Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you find the information you are seeking. If not, give us a call weekdays at 740-702-4000.
