Lisa's Story

Join us in congratulating Lisa Gates for her promotion to Assistant Manager at our Bennington, Vermont store!


Lisa has been with Goodwill for 8 years and what she loves most is getting to meet the customers, learning about the items that they are looking for and experiencing joy as they value their finds.  Lisa shares in their interests- she “loves” shopping.  She also takes joy in changing the music and watching the customers sing and dance.
