Goodwill Industries of Central Illinois has received a Community Health Award from The University of Illinois College of Medicine. The award was in recognition of Goodwill’s Stand Down for Homeless Veterans. The event takes place every year to serve the needs of area homeless veterans.
“The much needed resources and support provided annually by this program to homeless veterans was deemed to be aw-inspiring. As a program that aspires to make our community a better place for all, and especially for those in our community who have served our country and fallen on tough times, thank you!”, Community Health Award Committee.
“Awards like this are greatly appreciated but come second to knowing that we have helped our veterans during a time of need,” said Don Johnson, Goodwill president & CEO.
“I appreciate the recognition of our staff, who work tirelessly for months to make this event happen.”
