When Marcy moved out of her parents’ house, she had limited opportunities. At that time, she didn’t have a Driver’s License and this limited her to only a few jobs. She also was lacking some critical job skills to be successful in a job. Marcy was referred to the Community Based Vocational Training Program in Iowa Falls to gain valuable job skills. Marcy was successful through the program and was awarded a certificate for the significant progress that she had made.
Marcy started at the Mason City store 11 years ago and has learned and grown in the store. She started as general retail and was promoted to Team Lead. Marcy comes into work every day with a smile on her face ready to do her job. Marcy prides herself on her friendly service when she is at the register. She has had customers compliment her about how helpful and friendly she is on the floor. Marcy loves that Goodwill can help veterans through Boots to Suits and school-aged kids through the Shoe and Mitten Parties. Marcy likes being a part of Goodwill and wants to continue to grow with Goodwill in the future.
When you make a monetary donation, you help support our veterans and children in need in our community for our Boots to Suits and Shoe and Mitten Parties. Our Boots to Suits program is for veterans who need clothing. They receive $40 Goodwill gift cards to use in our Goodwill stores to thank them for their service to our country and to give them a hand up. Our Shoe and Mitten Parties are held every December in seventeen of our store locations to children in need. Each child receives shoes, a pair of socks, hats, and mittens for the winter months ahead.
