Goodwill CEO on weekly broadcast

Published on Sunday, 3 November 2013 22:25 - Written by Staff Reports

Kimberly Lewis, CEO of Goodwill Industries of East Texas, will be featured on this week’s Tyler Chamber Radio Show. Goodwill focuses on two areas: offering the job training and vocational rehabilitation necessary for disabled or disad­van­taged people to lead independent lives and collecting donations from the communities it serves to provide employment in the production and retail areas of Goodwill. The strength of the Vocational Services program of Goodwill Industries lies in the ability to train people to meet identified needs in the community. One of the greatest challenges facing the business world is finding qualified workers to fill jobs, particularly at the entry level. Yet while this shortage exists, people with disabilities and other barriers to employment remain unemployed.
