Goodwill is in the process of remodeling its Overland Park store - get excited for a new and improved look! We need a lot of new merchandise for the sales floor, and we have a lot of donations to process. Between now and Independence Day, we are looking for volunteers to support this social and team friendly opportunity. Volunteers will be sorting softlines donations.

Three stores have product available to sort:
Overland Park - 7241 W. 135th Street Overland Park, KS 66223
Olathe - 16630 W. 135th Street Olathe, KS 66062
KC Northland - 4824 N. Oak Trafficway Kansas City, MO 64118

Your support is incredibly valuable to our retail staff! Thank you for your time and efforts! Sales in our stores support our mission to empower job seekers with disadvantages and different abilities to earn and keep employment.

If you have a team of people who want to help out, but the shifts we've offered aren't ideal, just let us know - we'd be happy to work with your schedule. Contact us at 816-842-7425 or gvolunteer@mokangoodwill.org.

In Support of Goodwill of Western Missouri & Eastern Kansas

Goodwill of Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas (Goodwill) empowers people to discover their potential and adapt for the future through the power of work. We help job seekers throughout the entire employment continuum; we support individuals in engaging the workforce, retaining work, gaining skills, and advancing their careers. In 2020, we served 12,065 individuals and placed 601 people into new employment.

Goodwill provides workforce development services, job training, and employment in 82 counties across western Missouri and eastern Kansas, focusing our programs in the following counties: Jackson, Clay, Platte, Wyandotte, and Johnson. We support individuals with different abilities and disadvantaging conditions, such as persons with physical challenges or cognitive disorders, limited education and work history, criminal backgrounds, underemployment or unemployment, or a situational barrier such as lack of transportation or housing.

We believe every person deserves the opportunity to work. Employment is more than a paycheck. It is independence, agency, dignity, and equality. Jobs empower people to support themselves and their loved ones, pursue life goals, and participate in their communities. 

Goodwill impacts lives through three strategies customized to meet participants’ unique needs:

● Our donated goods retail model provides employment, career planning, and upskilling through the recycling and reselling of material donations in our stores. 

● Our commercial and government contracts offer case management and employment for individuals with a different ability. 

● Our employment services and workforce development programs provide job training, job coaching, career placement, and ongoing retention supports for people with severe barriers to employment.

Over our 127 years, we have served over 630,000 people, provided over 23,017,000 services and secured over 203,000 jobs.
