COLORADO SPRINGS — Despite state-wide closures and shutdowns due to the coronavirus, Goodwill Colorado is still trying to help folks find jobs.
Currently, Goodwill's retail locations are temporarily closed. Its E-commerce site and some job placement programs are also on hiatus.
But, they're still posting jobs opening on their site and their store-side donation centers are still open, so you can still make a contribution that way.
Drive-though donation centers are open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. You can drive up, and hand your donations to an attendant.
Attendants are equipped with Personal Protective Equipment and they are quarantining all donations for 72 hours out of precaution.
These donations help support their retail operations, which fund job placement programs for people with developmental disabilities and economic adversity.
So, Goodwill Colorado is asking the community to help by continuing to supporting their mission.
"Throughout Colorado, we've endured hardships," explained Bradd Haffer, Marketing Communications Director for Goodwill Colorado. "But we're more about serving individuals with disabilities and disadvantage in the midst of hardship, so that's right within our wheelhouse."
He added, "There are other doors of opportunity that are still opening within different industries and Goodwill has always been one that serves as that compass to guide people to those programs, services, resources, in this case opportunities for employment."
Even though job placement programs are paused right now, you can browse job openings here.
They range from part-time to full-time positions. If you need help with your application, you can email their HR help desk at email@example.com.
Goodwill Colorado says they're hoping to open their store doors once health and government officials deem it safe to do so.
