Goodwill Easterseals MN – Doing Their Part
In a recent visit with Chris Simon, Director of Logistics and Facilities for Goodwill Easter Seals MN and a tour of the St. Paul, MN Campus, I saw some of the behind the scenes activities that make up part of this nearly 100 year old organization, and I can say it is a very impressive operation!
When we drive thru our local Goodwill Retail Outlet Store and sit in our vehicles while the nice, friendly helpers unload our bags and boxes no longer wanted items, it is hard to understand the magnitude of the amount of items GESMN processes every day at their three MN logistics centers located in St. Paul, Brooklyn Center and their newest facility in Chaska. Here are just a few highlights of the impact this organization is making:
-divert over 60 Million pounds of materials from our landfills each year
-place 4 people in the workplace every day
-continuing their nearly 100 year mission of providing education, job training and placement services to eliminate barriers to work and independence.
ReQuip is looking forward to helping this great organization in any way possible.
