Goodwill Industries of Greater NY and Northern NJ, Inc. (Goodwill NYNJ) has continued to place people in employment during the Covid-19 pandemic. One of its 46 programs in the New York City metropolitan region, Jobs-Plus in The Bronx has placed more than 20 NYCHA residents in Covid-19 related positions like warehousing, maintenance, Healthcare and Security.
The situation around COVID-19 is changing so rapidly. We hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. These are unprecedented times. And your support is needed more than ever.
All 32 of our Goodwill stores in the New York City metropolitan region, including the 10 Northern NJ Counties, have temporarily closed for 2 weeks due to the executive orders from the NY and NJ Governors. The closure has left us without critical funding to operate our programs removing barriers to employment for the most vulnerable residents of our communities and to help them to prepare for jobs.
