Goodwill hunting

(Continued)

Tonawanda News — Goodwill has also begun recycling old electronic equipment with a partnership made in December with Sunnking Electronics Recycling company. That venture was in part due to the 42,000 pounds of electronic equipment collected annually by Goodwill in the area.

Lynch said efforts to expand the number of retail outlets in the Goodwill’s eight-county area picked up in recent years when the organization “just realized we have a lot more potential than we thought we had.” 

Increased revenues have also allowed the Goodwill to offer greater opportunities for the 274 individuals who work for the group, providing educational workshops and in many cases passing on basic “readiness skills” like showing up on time and having back-up plans for those who need to find daycare for their children. 

“That’s more important than anything,” he said.
