Amarillo, TX - Goodwill is officially coming back to Amarillo. Goodwill Industries in Lubbock is now assigned to our area here in Amarillo. It's been a few months since Goodwill Industries of Amarillo filed for bankruptcy and closed.
The Lubbock office is pleased to announce that they are assigned to our area and plan on running things with Amarillo residents in mind. A special summit has been organized for Wednesday December second at the united way of Amarillo and Canyon.
It will be held from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. in United Way's conference room. Goodwill wants to hear input from local representatives, Nonprofits, School personnel and any other interested parties.
Frankie Francel of the United Way of Amarillo and Canyon says Goodwill needs to learn specifically about Amarillo. "What are the needs in this community. What sorts of programs are the people especially those working with clients in this community wanting to see from Goodwill."
