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.
Goodwill Industries of the Greater East Bay is the honored recipient of a Telly Award for our video celebrating the 2016 James Sweeny “Power of Work” Award winner Raymond Hernandez. Telly Awards honor excellence in TV and cable, digital and streaming, and non-broadcast productions. Goodwill’s video was chosen for a bronze distinction from a pool of over 13,000 entries.
Shawn Pangelinan has a smile you won’t forget, one you may have seen brightening up the side of a Goodwill truck as it passes you on the street. The story of how he became Calidad’s facilities manager at Camp Parks is memorable too.
