Starting Tuesday, October 21 and continuing through Friday, January 16, 2015, New York City residents may drop off their donations of nonperishable foods at the Goodwill NY-NJ Astoria headquarters (4-21 27th Avenue; Astoria, NY 11102) or their nearest New York City Goodwill store.
Last year, Goodwill NY-NJ employed 1,960 people with disabilities in its industries.
Goodwill NY-NJ is proud to stand with the U.S. Department of Labor to support National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This national campaign raises awareness about the contributions people with disabilities make in America’s workforce, and it encourages companies and organizations to build business cultures that value diversity, respect and employment opportunities for all.
The New York City Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities (MOPD) in partnership with the City’s Department of Sanitation (DSNY) cordially invites you to register for New York City’s Winter Weather Access and Mobility Summit.
The conference will describe the steps that people with disabilities and their loved ones can take to ensure safe travel during the winter months.
