FORT MYERS, Fla. - Feb. 19, 2014 - PRLog -- Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. invites the public to enjoy an open house on Friday, February 28 for the organization’s new headquarters, the Goodwill Opportunity Center. The building is located at 5100 Tice Street in Fort Myers.

“Goodwill has grown so much in the almost fifty years we’ve been in the community,” says Madison Mitchell, a Goodwill spokesperson. “In 2010 we assisted just over 16,000 people in Southwest Florida. In 2013, we helped over 37,000.”

From 10:30a.m. to 1:30p.m., members of the community can enjoy a ribbon cutting, behind the scene tours of Goodwill’s operations, free and delicious lunch, music and are invited to see how Goodwill is making a difference in the lives of people across Southwest Florida.

The new 126,000 square foot Goodwill Opportunity Center houses the organization’s administrative, retail, operations and transportation offices, as well as the Goodwill Outlet Center, which features donated goods sold by the pound, and the Goodwill L.I.F.E. Academy, a tuition-free charter school for students with intellectual disabilities. Goodwill’s Community Support Services department is also housed at the Opportunity Center.

“The Open House will be a fun way for people to get to know the other side of Goodwill,” says Mitchell. “To see how Goodwill goes beyond just our stores.”
