Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries' mission is to help individuals with barriers to self-sufficiency to achieve independence and dignity through work. Not charity, but a chance. Goodwill provides job training and career services to 6,300 people each year.
Goodwill’s Boston Marathon team raises funds for the Peter Morrissey Youth Fund, named in memory of a longtime board member and advocate for Goodwill who helped shape the organization’s marathon program and was passionate about supporting young people. Goodwill’s history in the community includes a long tradition of formative programs for youth. Today, the organization offers many opportunities for high school students in Boston, with the goal of helping young people to bridge successfully into adulthood and enter the workforce. Programs are tailored to young people in underserved communities who most need the support, including young adults with disabilities and those from low-income families. Your support of the team will help youth of all abilities during a critical time as they transition to independent lives as adults.
