Milgard Windows & Doors, in partnership with Goodwill of the Olympics & Rainier Region, is holding a community clothing and household goods drive on November 28, 2017 from 9:30am – 12:30pm.
The community is invited to visit the Milgard corporate office and join their employees in making donations of clothing and household items to Goodwill. The address is: 1010 54th Ave East in Fife, Washington. Donations accepted include: Clothing, Shoes Belts and Accessories, Books and Media, Jewelry, Electronics, Sporting Goods and Housewares (just to name a few). Please do not bring: broken or recalled items, major appliances or bedding. For a complete list of donation guidelines, see goodwillwa.org. Donated goods are sold at Goodwill stores to help support career and job training as well as educational opportunities.
In addition to the goods drive, Goodwill will be unveiling their new trailer featuring Milgard Windows & Doors as a community outreach partner. Milgard is proud to be a Goodwill partner and has provided opportunities for job seekers through apprenticeship training programs and employment at their manufacturing locations.
“Milgard Windows & Doors has worked very closely with Goodwill over the years,” said Cory Hall, Vice President of Human Resources at Milgard. “We want to actively support our local community and Goodwill programs help us do that.”
“We thank Milgard Windows and Doors for their critical support to the unemployed in our region,” said Lori Forte Harnick, President and CEO of Goodwill. “Whether through job placements at Milgard local manufacturing facilities, donation drives to fund our career training, or employee support of Goodwill fundraising programs, Milgard has always been one of our premier corporate partners. For their generosity, we are proud to feature them on our fleet vehicles.”
Milgard has also partnered with Goodwill on their Jeans & Jerseys for Jobs Day fundraiser and the Milgard Work Opportunity Center in Tacoma, which offers a full range of support for those entering the work force. This facility provides a free drop in job search room, resume writing and interviewing techniques, as well as in depth job training programs in areas such as computer skills, culinary skills, custodial skills and retail.
