Goodwill

 

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, CEO of Goodwill Industries of Northern New England gave the club a most informative presentation regarding Goodwill, how it works and who benefits.  The credo at Goodwill is "nothing wasted" and Anna brought us through the donation process and where all that "stuff" ends up.  Each Goodwill is operated separately and the Northern New England chapter is cutting edge.
