Make a financial donation
A gift to Goodwill Industries of Denver provides career opportunities for at-risk students, struggling adults, and individuals with disabilities right here in Colorado. The best part is, your financial gift goes directly to Goodwill’s career development programs.
Meet Brady Haynes
When you give to Goodwill, you're helping people like Brady Haynes. Brady is a farmer and a scientist in the field of Agronomy in Sedgwick, Colorado, who works with other local farmers to optimize their crops’ yield, soil and other environmental factors. As an individual who uses a wheelchair, Brady found it difficult to get out into his clients’ fields to see how their crops were growing—or not—in order to test and monitor the soil, plants and pests.
Thanks to the Colorado AgrAbility Project, one of Goodwill’s many mission programs, Brady received two agricultural drones. This is such an incredible innovation! The drones fly out into the fields where it’s harder for Brady to access and collect the data he uses to help growers spot and treat crop disease and use water more efficiently.
Brady is grateful for the help he’s received from AgrAbility: “They work so hard! I’ve sent them a ton of ideas, and they always get right back to me,” Brady says of his AgrAbility managers. “Their guidance and support mean the world to me.”
The unique partnership between Goodwill, Colorado State University, and the Colorado Department of Labor’s Division of Vocational Rehabilitation allowed AgrAbility to provide direct services to over 85 Colorado farmers across the state, and provide educational workshops, networking opportunities, counseling, education, referrals and advocacy to more than 1,806 individuals in 2018!
