Many people know Goodwill because of its retail sales and donations centers, but the appreciation breakfast June 1 was focused on something even more exciting: Goodwill's Youth Services programs.
For almost 90 years, Goodwill Denver has helped disadvantaged and disabled adults improve their lives. Over the past fifteen years, they have expanded their programs to include at-risk youth. Currently, they proudly serve more than 15,000 teens in 29 public schools in the metro Denver area and Greeley.
Goodwill volunteers were recognized in the following categories: Mock Interviewers, Career Panelists, Guest Speakers, Listo's (Latinos Involved in Sharing Tomorrow's Opportunities) and one-on-one and/or group mentors.
Some of the much-appreciated participants and winners in several volunteer categories included the following:
The breakfast conclusion was highlighted by the generosity of the Curtis Hotel. A drawing took place for a one-night stay at this prestigious hotel. For more information about Goodwill Denver programs, log on to http://www.goodwilldenver.org.
