We encourage everyone to join us, and to invite your friends, to our “Hope to Opportunity” Tour. These tours are offered twice a month. Take only one hour to explore the many services & programs that we provide; meet the people we serve as they share their story; and participate in a behind-the-scenes tour of our missions. Talk with people whose lives have been changed thanks to your donations and support.
We are looking for dedicated and hardworking individuals to begin their career with us. We currently have entry level and management level job openings in our Mobile County, Baldwin County and Florida stores! Did you know that when you work for GES, you get to change lives while earning a paycheck as well as some really great benefits? Come join our team – apply online at http://www.gesgc.org/employment/.
What is Goodwill Easterseals to you? Most people immediately think of their neighborhood thrift store. However, Goodwill Easterseals is much more than that to our community. We serve over 11,000 people, in a variety of missions, in 12 counties along the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast.
Our Hope to Opportunity Tours are offered twice a month for anyone wishing to see what happens with donations when they support Goodwill Easterseals. This is a one-hour tour that will allow participants to see missions in action and hear from some of the people we serve.
Three-in-One: Recycling, Job Training & Education
Mobile County’s Recycling Center on Hitt Rd. was awarded the 2017 Excellence in County Administration by the Association of County Administrators of Alabama at its annual conference in Orange Beach last week.
The Mobile County Recycling Center was built and equipped by the Mobile County Commission and is operated by Goodwill Easterseals of the Gulf Coast. Goodwill Easterseals is a local non profit organization which aims to strengthen individuals, families and communities in the Gulf Coast region through encouragement, education, and employment. . In addition to recycling, Goodwill Easterseals provides job training and environmental education to the county’s students.
The Recycling Center, opened in Nov. 2014, is on track to recycle 7 million pounds of material by year’s end. More than 300 cars a day and 500 on Saturdays use the drive up facility to recycle household waste.
