If you think you know Goodwill Industries, there may be more to the organization than you realize. Carolyn Johnson from Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc., dispels some of the myths surrounding the organization and explains how it helped more than 25,000 disabled or disadvantaged people in Southwest Florida last year alone. Goodwill is about more than just bargain shopping and donating unneeded items, according to Carolyn, Goodwill's VP of Communications and Development in Lee County, Fla. For example, many retail locations include a Community Resource Center, where anybody can use a computer to compile a resume, apply for a job and even experience a mock interview with a volunteer employment consultant. Part 1 of 2 shows with Carolyn. Host: Jim Sanville. Producer: Jerry Johnson.
