You never know where volunteering will lead you. Take for instance Olotania Alalamua. He’s a student at Honolulu Community College and is part of the Fashion Technology program. He started with us as a volunteer production worker because he had an eye for identifying brand named and vintage items to support the inventory goals for the GLAM! event. Because of his good attitute and hard work, his time as a Goodwill GLAM! Squad volunteer has transitioned into a job. He is a part-time worker at Goodwill and he is learning about the production process before items reach the retail stores.
