Thank you, Volunteers!

As we wrap up National Volunteer Week, we just wanted to say a hearty THANK YOU to all of the volunteers that serve in our Job Training and Education Centers, Vintage Fashion Collection, administrative offices, at our events, and more. Last year, 745 people in our community donated 11,599 hours to see the mission of Seattle Goodwill advance. And with their help, Seattle Goodwill served over 8,700 people through job training and education programs.

So, again, THANK YOU, Volunteers!

Each year, we have volunteer opportunities for individuals, couples and teams, and corporations. Read below to see how some of our community members have donated their time to support our mission.

Charles from Boeing
Boeing is a longtime partner of Seattle Goodwill, and supports our work in a variety of ways. One way they support us is through a volunteer group known as the Boeing Human Resources Career Foundations Program (HRCFP), led by employee and Seattle Goodwill volunteer Charles Bridges, Boeing HRCFP participant.



Kristi and Massimo
Kristi James and Massimo Tumini are volunteer models for our Vintage Fashion Collection — and walked the runway in our 2015 Glitter Gala and Fashion Show. Kristi learned about the volunteer opportunity, and was thrilled to learn that people of all shapes, sizes, and ages were invited to participate. After modeling at a few fashion shows and returning “ecstatic about how much fun it was,” she convinced her husband Massimo to join.


Cheryl Harrison volunteers as an instructor's aide at our Job Training & Education Center in Shoreline — and has been doing so for nearly a year. She found Goodwill while pursuing opportunities to get more involved with direct, hands-on service in the community.



If you or your company would like to get involved at Seattle Goodwill, check out our volunteer opportunities, and get in touch with our Volunteer Resource Coordinator Ingrid Hartsock by emailing


Kim fancies herself a professional communicator. She has experience in writing, graphic design, and social media, and is always looking to expand her knowledge base into other fields of communication. She loves people, coffee & Seattle (including the rain).
