The mission of Goodwill Industries is to help people discover and develop their God-given gifts through education, work, and career development services. Volunteers are needed in the CSRA to provide 1:1 support and encouragement by serving as Mentors, Job Connection Guides, Retail Store or GoodBooks Cafe Volunteers. Goodwill also has a variety of projects for groups. We welcome your support and invite you to help give community members with barriers to employment a hand UP! Contact Amy Breitmann, Volunteer Manager at 706-650-5951 for more information.
Goodwill Industries of the CSRA has a unique opportunity for a volunteer to make history come alive here in Augusta!
As part of Phase II of the construction of Augusta’s Career Campus, Goodwill is building a Chapel and Museum to Goodwill’s Methodist Minister Founder, Reverend Edgar Helms. Rev. Helms started Goodwill in 1902 as America’s first social entrepreneur, partnering with the business community to create a self-sustaining education and training program that offered the unemployed a “hand up” out of poverty.
We are looking for a volunteer with museum experience to assist us in the following areas:
• Help finalize the design of the Helms Museum space.
• Consult the architect and designers on the care and display of historic pieces in the museum.
• Assist in the overall plan of display for historic items to include important documents, photographs, and historic objects related to Goodwill’s founder and 110-year history.
• Assist with the securing of historical items from autonomous Goodwill organizations from around the world.
Contact Amy Breitmann, Volunteer Manager for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-650-5760.
