Goodwill Grand Opening in West Melbourne, FL

Posted on May 16, 2014

Goodwill Industries of Central Florida has been a client of CNL Commercial Real Estate for several years now.  Many of us are familiar with Goodwill and its thrift stores but very few of us have an understanding of their mission and the positive effect they are having within the communities they serve.  Their mission is to “Build Lives that Work.”  This mission is simple and succinct but extremely powerful.  They turn our donations into ways to help individuals with job training and career coaching for free.  When you spend time with their employees and leadership, you quickly see that they operate from a place of gratitude and authenticity.  They simply want everyone that needs assistance to have the resources available to “build a life that works.”

CNL Commercial Real Estate has assisted Goodwill Industries of Central Florida manage and execute their real estate strategies.  This encompasses their retail stores, donation centers and job centers.  Goodwill Industries of Central Florida covers six counties and includes 26 retail locations, 18 donation express locations and 9 job centers.
