Goodwill of the Great Plains is excited to announce that GoodShred, the organization’s secure document and hard drive destruction service, has a brand-new look after a new GoodShred logo was unveiled earlier this fall.

GoodShred’s mission, however, is staying the same – offering individuals and businesses throughout the entire Goodwill of the Great Plains region of Northeast Nebraska, Northwest Iowa, Southwest Minnesota and the entirety of South Dakota access to an accredited document and hard drive destruction service.

How does GoodShred work? It’s easy!

A GoodShred truck makes regularly scheduled visits to your home or business to pick up the items you need securely destroyed. GoodShred follows strict i-SIGMA regulations, which means paper entrusted to GoodShred is pulped and made into reusable paper products within the United States. The service isn’t just for securely destroying paper, our professionals can also handle several types of media including CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs, flash drives, memory cards, microfilm and more!

“GoodShred is committed to guarding your information and destroying it safely. Plus, our team daily strives to uphold Goodwill’s mission to treat people with compassion, integrity and dignity while celebrating the achievements of those who are reaching their potential,” said Daniel Peters, GoodShred Manager.

Not only do the services offered by GoodShred keep thousands of pounds of paper and electronics out of landfills each year through recycling, but $.88 of every dollar raised goes toward Goodwill’s mission of helping those with barriers find work. Each year, more than 30,000 individuals are served by programs and services offered by Goodwill of the Great Plains.

EVENT TIME: 11:00am – 1:00pm (RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY @ 11:30am)
EVENT LOCATION: 3100 W. 4th St., Sioux City, IA

Sioux City, IA- To celebrate 100 years of creating dignity and compassion through the power of work, Goodwill of the Great Plains is hosting a customer appreciation celebration, featuring a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce, at the Sioux City retail store at 3100 W. 4th St. at 11:30am on May 18. Mayor Pro-Tem Dan Moore will also present a commendation to recognize the historic anniversary at that time.

Complimentary lunch provided, while supplies last, from 11:00am-1:00pm!

Starting as Wall Street Mission in Sioux City in 1890, Goodwill of the Great Plains joined the international Goodwill movement in 1923. The organization’s territory has since expanded, with 21 retail stores in a four-state territory; a 22nd store will open in Vermillion, SD in 2024.

“Goodwill’s ability to tackle community needs would not be possible without the generous support of donors and shoppers,” said Goodwill of the Great Plains President & CEO Briget Solomon. “Our retail program provides jobs to community members, a place for job training opportunities for those enrolled in our programs and helps fund the work of Goodwill.”

Goodwill founder Edgar J. Helms (a Spirit Lake, Iowa native) explained it best – Goodwill is a business PLUS. It exists for service, not for profit. As such, Goodwill of the Great Plains operates mission programming throughout its territory, advocating for economic self-sufficiency through employment and education.

We accomplish this through various job training programs and placement services, which include four regional Job Centers, a new Career Cruiser (a Job Center on Wheels!) and more. In 2022, more than 400 people were placed into community jobs after utilizing our services.
