GOODWILL INDUSTRIES OF CENTRAL EAST TEXAS
Home | Goodwill Central East Texas
The mission of Goodwill has not changed much since that beginning, believing in “The Power of Work”, and the employability for all people.
Goodwill began operating in Lufkin as a branch store of the Tyler Goodwill in 1983. Since that time, the operation has grown to include three stores, one each in Lufkin, Nacogdoches, and Diboll. This operation became independent or autonomous on January 1, 1988, and is governed by a Board of Directors made up of local business people from the area served which includes, Angelina, Nacogdoches, Houston, San Augustine, Sabine, and Trinity counties.
Goodwill is actually owned by the community it serves and the Board of Directors acts as the community representative to ensure that Goodwill serves the community in a responsible way.
