COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund

Help us provide support for Chattanooga Goodwill Team Members affected by the Covid-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on the global economy.  While the U.S. government has taken extroidanary measures to support families and businesses, many businesses have been forced to restrict hours, layoff workers or close their doors.

 Sadly, many businesses may not recover and may be forced to close permanently.

On March 23, 2020, Chattanooga Goodwill made the decision to temporarily close our retail store operations in an effort to to protect employees, program participants, shoppers, and donors. Our top priority remains health and safety.

We were also forced to make significant staff reductions which impacted our employees. This is an incredibly difficult but necessary decision to stabilize our social service organization to be able to continue to deliver our mission for the future. It is our hope and expectation that these actions will position us to reopen, resume services and rebuild when the global health crisis subsides.

We have taken immediate steps to provide support for our team members who have been laid off including setting up the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund.

We will be helping employees during this transition providing support through job placement, job training, and job re-allocation. With your help, we can do more to support these team members and their families.
