  • EMPLOYER: Kentwood Office Furniture
  • INDUSTRY: Furniture
  • PARTNERSHIP: Goodwill
  • AREA OF FOCUS: Hiring
“What I like about Goodwill is that Goodwill helps people. They take people who are really struggling in the economy, struggling to find a job or may have some barriers to employment, and they work with them, develop them, and train them to get a job. These workers become productive members of society and save the community, state and federal government money. They put people to work rather than placing them on welfare.”
Art Hasse, Chief Executive Officer
