FORT MYERS, Fla. - June 13, 2024 - PRLog -- The Community Foundation of Sarasota County has awarded a $10,000 grant to Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. to support a customer service portal and kiosk in multiple languages which will allow Goodwill resource staff to better collect data, serve clients and track outcomes per specific demographic groups served.

As a pilot, this kiosk feature will be available at the Goodwill Community Resource Center (CRC) in Port Charlotte, allowing individuals to access assistance and overcome language barriers, while enabling Goodwill staff to more readily follow up with those served keeping them moving toward their goals.

"We are grateful for and excited about the Community Foundation of Sarasota County's support for the customer portal and kiosk! This grant truly builds our capacity both to serve and to communicate program success" states Angela Hemstreet, Goodwill SWFL's Director of Employment Services.
