Partnership with Bank of America Opens Five New Goodwill Donation Locations

Partnership with Bank of America Opens Five New Goodwill Donation Locations

Donation Locations Create Jobs and Increase Donor Convenience

For the first time in Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s 40-year history in the greater Las Vegas area, a local bank is donating space at multiple branches for convenient attended donation locations for the local nonprofit.

As of today at 7 a.m., five new freestanding Goodwill donation locations are officially open in the parking lots at the following Bank of America branches across the valley:

4801 W Charleston Blvd. (at Decatur)

4800 W Tropicana Ave. (at Decatur)

1100 N Green Valley Parkway (at Pebble)

641 Mall Ring Circle (Galleria Mall)

8581 W Lake Mead Blvd. (at Rampart)

Each donation location is staffed with a Goodwill Donation Ambassador who will provide donors with a donation receipt, provide customer service to donors and safeguard goods. The opening of the new donation locations creates three full-time jobs and five part-time positions in Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s operations department.

The donation locations are open seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“By hosting multiple Goodwill donation sites, Bank of America is making a tremendous ongoing commitment to what continues to be a pressing concern in our community – unemployment,” said Steve Chartrand, president & CEO of Goodwill of Southern Nevada.

Donations of goods are critical to Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s mission of helping people in Southern Nevada find work, no matter circumstance or disability. Donated goods are sold in local Goodwill retail stores and fund Goodwill’s life-changing, no-cost job placement and job training programs. Last year alone, Goodwill of Southern Nevada helped 2,361 individuals in this community secure steady employment.

This announcement follows Bank of America awarding Goodwill’s Veteran Integration Program (VIP) with its signature $200,000 Neighborhood Builders grant. The grant will assist approximately 225 veterans and/or family members to find work in Southern Nevada over a two-year period.

“We continue to be impressed by Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s dedication to serving not only veterans but the entire community,” said George W. Smith, Nevada President of Bank of America. “Many of the new donation locations will be staffed by local veterans and we are proud to partner with a nonprofit that believes as strongly as we do in helping local veterans succeed.”

Goodwill of Southern Nevada
More than 700 job seekers attend Goodwill Hiring Event featuring 80+ hiring employers & 1,600 open jobs

 

Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s hiring event at The Boulevard Mall, located at 3528 S. Maryland Parkway, on Tuesday June 16, 2015 attracted more than 700 job seekers, including local veterans seeking employment.
The event, sponsored by Bank of America, allowed those looking for work to meet employers face to face.  Some employers conducted interviews onsite.   Veterans and others could also sign up for Goodwill’s no-cost job placement and training services.
The hiring event was an extension of Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s Veteran Integration Program, or VIP, which offers specific job placement programs to veterans and their immediate family members, in addition to veteran employment specialists who provide peer-to-peer assistance.  This program was recently awarded Bank of America’s prestigious Neighborhood Builder grant of $200,000 to grow such vital services for veterans.
Since its inception in late 2012, Goodwill’s VIP has helped nearly 600 veterans and immediate family members secure employment in Southern Nevada.

Job seekers and veterans can always find no-cost help at any of Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s Career Connections Centers.  For more information, call (702) 214-2025 or visit www.Goodwill.Vegas.

Interviews will be done onsite for many of the open job positions.  Job seekers should dress professionally, bring several copies of their resumes and reference information.

The hiring event is an extension of Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s Veteran Integration Program, or VIP, which offers specific job placement programs to veterans and their immediate family members, in addition to veteran employment specialists who can provide peer-to-peer assistance.

More than 3,500 Walkers Expected to Raise $575,000 for JDRF

More than 3,500 walkers representing local businesses, families, schools, and other organizations are expected to participate in the JDRF Nevada Chapter’s annual Walk to Cure Diabetes, on Saturday, November 10 at UNLV. The chapter has set a fundraising goal of more than $575,000 which will help fund research toward preventing, better treating, and curing type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications.

“It’s great to be partnering with JDRF and working together toward such an important goal – promoting awareness of  type 1 diabetes and raising funds to advance research,” said Tony Twist, Region Vice President of Cash America / SuperPawn and Co-Chair of this year’s Walk.  “By working together, we can make a difference for the millions of people who are affected by this disease.”

The Walk is expected to draw an enthusiastic crowd of all ages, driven to support a great cause while enjoying an event that includes entertainment, food and type 1 advocacy.  On-site registration begins at  9:00 a.m.  The entire walk will be approximately three miles long, starting on the North Field of the UNLV Campus.

“The community support for the Walk to Cure Diabetes is overwhelming,” said Phil Patent, President and COO of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and Jamba Juice – Las Vegas and Walk Co-Chair.   “Type 1 diabetes is a disease that affects as many as 3 million Americans, and it is through the help and dedication of corporate sponsors, corporate walk teams, and family teams  that JDRF is able to fund the research to develop better treatments and one day a cure for those people and their families.”

JDRF Walks are held in more than 200 cities worldwide. Nearly 900,000 people nationally walked last year and raised $86 million for research toward curing, treating, and preventing T1D and its complications.
