This year, Goodwill was honoured, not once, but twice for our efforts in environmental stewardship, innovation and sustainability. This started in June, as the Alberta Emerald Foundation recognized Goodwill as a leader in Sustainability in the category of Community Group or Not-For-Profit for a Large Organization. Receiving the award on behalf of Goodwill was President and CEO Dale Monaghan and Board Chair Kevin MacDonald.
This award recognizes associations dedicated to furthering a particular social cause or advocating for a shared point of view that have demonstrated a significant commitment to the environment through their actions.
In October, Goodwill was honoured once again for the efforts in innovation and sustainability, this time at the Alberta Nonprofit Innovation Awards hosted by the Calgary Chamber of Voluntary Organizations.
Goodwill Industries of Alberta was the proud recipient of the 2019 Calgary Chamber of Volunteer Organizations for social enterprise innovation. Receiving the award for Goodwill was President and CEO Dale Monaghan, Vice President of Donated Goods and Retail Fay Wisted, as well as Store Managers from throughout the Calgary region.
The award recognizes innovation and high-performance success with the operation of the Amazing Edmonton Impact Centre and the Sustainability Action Plan, for which ATB Financial is a major supporter of.
These awards wouldn’t be possible without the wonderful team members at Goodwill. This is how it success becomes a reality. Each year Goodwill recognizes the accomplishments of team members throughout the province with the Goodwill Greatness Awards.
While there were numerous award winners, Goodwill is proud of the hard work each and every Goodwillian puts forward. Without the entire organization working as a whole, Goodwill would not be able to execute on the mission of providing meaningful employment to Albertans’ with disabilities.
