Anschutz Grant helps Goodwill put people back to work
Goodwill Industries of Denver has been awarded a $50,000 grant by the Anschutz Foundation to fund its newest Career Connection Center in Denver’s Stapleton neighborhood. The center will be housed in Goodwill’s new store at 7797 East 36th Avenue. The new Stapleton Goodwill location will open to the public on Saturday, May 26, 2012.
With nearly eight percent of Colorado workers still unemployed, the Stapleton Career Connection Center will serve as a free jobs resource for the whole community. The Anschutz grant will allow Goodwill to host free classes that teach valuable job-search skills like how to write a resume and how to dress and prepare for a job interview. Jobseekers will also have free access to computers to search for jobs, work on their resumes and respond to professional emails.
Goodwill opened its first Career Connection Center in Aurora in August of 2011. To date, hundreds of jobseekers have utilized the free career resources offered at the Aurora location to obtain the support and skills needed to secure a career and provide for themselves and their families.
