Goodwill Industries of the Berkshires and Southern Vermont helps community members with barriers to employment attain independence and self-sufficiency, gain confidence, and enhance their quality of life, through vocational education, work training, and other support services.
Goodwill In Action
As one of two original employees in the Rutland store, Lori fondly remembers the grand opening and all of the celebration experienced by the many customers excited to have Goodwill Industries of the Berkshires become a part of their community.
Lori came out of retirement to join our staff 5 years ago. Lori says “it was just the right time for me” because “it gave me a purpose.” She speaks highly of her co-workers and says that she “got to know good people.”
