Whether we're in class, in town, or out of town ... we're on the go, having fun, and constantly learning.
We look forward to reading your comments!

Goodwill Industries -- March 3, 2011
On this trip, we visited the Goodwill Industries of Central Illinois warehouse in East Peoria, where we learned all about the donation and distribution process that serves 21 counties throughout central Illinois.
Local Goodwill staff discussed the organization’s nine area retail stores, three donation centers, and the General Wayne A. Downing Home for Veterans, which provides a safe haven for homeless veterans in the community. In addition, we found out more about Goodwill’s youth mentoring program and classroom and online training courses.
