It’s been quite a summer season for Goodwill Industries of the Greater East Bay. We opened the doors of our brand new Walnut Creek store at 2536 North Main Street to a waiting crowd of Goodwill fans in July. The store sits at a convenient location in Walnut Creek, visible from the freeway, with easy freeway access, a convenient parking lot, and a view of Mount Diablo from the store windows.
In honor of Goodwill Industries of the Greater East Bay’s designation as the Oakland A’s “Job Creation Partner,” Goodwill Day was celebrated at the A’s game on July 3rd. As the game began, five of Goodwill and Calidad’s past program participants Maria Harral, Belen Zarate, Raymond Hernandez, Michelle Norton, and Shawn Pangelinan, stood at home base on Rickey Henderson Field with our A’s spokesperson, first baseman Ryon Healy.
