Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina opened its newest store in Mocksville today. The new store, located at 1355 Yadkinville Road in Mocksville, a replacement store for the 1117 Yadkinville Road location, is twice the size and offers a convenient covered donation drive-through.
Goodwill Transforms Donations into Jobs and Job Training
Goodwill of Northwest North Carolina placed over 5,000 people into jobs last year. Revenue generated from the sale of donated items pays for career development and training programs that help people find jobs and reach financial stability. Goodwill provides a wide range of training, placement and workforce development services to help people develop the skills they need to find jobs and become more independent. These services are offered at our Workforce Development Centers and are offered in partnership with area community colleges, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, the Department of Social Services, Mental Health and other community organizations.
