Organization says donations do more good than you realize

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Goodwill organization wants Region 8 to know any donation you make will do more good than you realize.

The organization assists people with disabilities and works to build lives through training, education and employment services.

Northeast Arkansas Career Services Manager Heather Parsons said your help is invaluable.

"When you donate to Goodwill all your donations stay locally, stay within the state of Arkansas," Parsons said. "In fact, 96% of the funds that help fund our mission come from our donated items. So, every time you're making a donation, that donation is counting and will help someone in need."

Goodwill served 1,200 people and placed over 530 into employment locally.

They've helped 12,000 in the state of Arkansas.
