Goodwill, Western Tech Partner to Support Hurricane Harvey Victims

As the City of Houston and Southeastern Texas continues to battle one of the worst storms to hit the state in decades, Goodwill Industries of El Paso, in conjunction with Western Technical College, is transporting donations of clothes, shoes, and linens to aid in relief efforts.

“We are very appreciative of the El Paso and Las Cruces communities that donate to us regularly to help us fulfill our mission to provide training, skills and services for people with barriers to employment,” says Melinda Jordan, CEO of Goodwill, El Paso,  “However, there comes a time when these donations need to be used to help those that have lost everything as a result of this historic storm.”

“We are also thankful to Western Technical College for transporting the donations to Houston showing how caring and compassionate our cities are — cities we are proud to be a part of,” Jordan added.

Goodwill Industries of El Paso, Inc. serves Far West Texas and Southern New Mexico, and Western Technical College – Founded in 1970 – has been a family-owned and operated nationally accredited institution of higher education for four generations in El Paso.
