BG, vice president of Job Training and Education at Goodwill Seattle, sees potential in all people. That’s because she was just like Innocent when she was a girl, in need of support and guidance from others to find her way.

Coaches, teachers and mentors helped BG realize her worth, and she does the same for people at Goodwill, each and every day.

This winter, we want to change 230 lives in Seattle. So far, we’ve helped 187 people. Please join us today and help us surpass our winter goal.
