Wishes do come true!
Even without cake and candles, it felt like our birthday this morning, when volunteers from TIAA-CREF stopped by our Career Development Center to deliver 55 donated computers as part of the organization’s partnership with United Way of Central Carolinas. (We’re one of United Way’s partner agencies.)
“We’ll put this equipment to good use as incentives and rewards to equip our consumers with 21st-century skills, which includes access to technology,” says LaRita Barber, our vice president of development.
Consumers who receive the computers will be able to use them to aid in their job searches and skills development to further complement the training they receive from Goodwill.
We can’t wait to see these machines in action. Thanks again to TIAA-CREF and United Way of Central Carolinas!
