Meet Lori Lau, Goodwill’s Assistant Director of Workforce Development which includes overseeing the statewide SEE Hawaii Work and VITA program. Lori joined Goodwill in 2005, prior to Goodwill, she worked as an Outreach Counselor for at-risk youth with the YMCA. Here’s Lori’s blog article:
If you’re like me, you took advantage of the past few rainy weeks to catch up on your favorite TV shows and put some serious miles on the couch. “Wait, she said what?!!” Well, I’m ready to come out of hibernation and get back out there.It’s easy and fun, yes FUN, to get involved. Be A Volunteer! Okay, tell the truth, when was the last time you got really excited about volunteering? Well, if you love Great Deals, Social Media, Style, Fashion, Photography, Hair and Make-up—and we know you do!—I know just the place for you!
Proceeds will benefit Goodwill’s ongoing mission and services. Goodwill’s mission is helping people with employment barriers to reach their full potential ans become self-sufficient.
There is also a call out to individuals that have experience with Stage Production and Retail Operations for the 3-and-a-half-day extravaganza, so get your friends to volunteer too.
Volunteering is a great way to support any organization—if you’ve been following this blog you’d know Goodwill’s a great one—and gives back to our community. Volunteering makes us feel good about ourselves and strengthens the connections we have with each other. A total of 250 volunteers are needed throughout the Goodwill Goes GLAM! event. The title sponsor of the event is Bank of Hawaii. They have a great reputation for giving back to the community, not only through event sponsorships but through their employee volunteer programs. I encourage you to be a part of Goodwill Goes GLAM! in August, so make sure you sign-up (click here) to do your good work today!
I’ll see you there, and don’t worry, The Voice will be over by then!
