Grand Re-Opening & Ribbon Cutting for Goodwill 51 Place
06/07/2019 05:26 PM
Goodwill Industries Select Store and Donation Center, located at 637 Hwy. 51 in Ridgeland, celebrated their recent expansion with a ribbon cutting and Grand Re-Opening.
2019 Ridgeland Chamber President Bill Bethany with Community Bank welcomed guests to the ceremony.
Mr. Willie Chambers, an employee of Goodwill, gave a heartfelt invocation to bless the building and all those that it will serve in years to come.
President Bethany congratulated David Hollingsworth, President and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Mississippi and his team for renovating and expanding the center.
Goodwill Industries first opened this location’s doors in August 2010 and the Ridgeland Chamber celebrated with a ribbon cutting welcoming the Goodwill team to our growing business community. Goodwill provides jobs, education and opportunities for people with disabilities and other barriers to find employment.
Through donations and because of shoppers, this Goodwill 51 store location has grown into one of the most productive Goodwill facilities in our state.
The recently made renovations and expanded space will offer the public increased space for additional donations, creation of more job opportunities and training and a fresher shopping experience for all.
Through Goodwill, we can change lives and make our community even better.
Thank you, David, for your continued investment in our City.
