Charity to Expand Hours of Operation
Goodwill wants to make this the best year yet for local job seekers.
In an effort to provide greater service in the Augusta area, Goodwill’s Job ConnectionSM, located at 3179 Washington Road at Fury’s Ferry Road, will now be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays starting Jan. 14. These weekend hours are in addition to the Job Connection’s normal office hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, and will provide extended service opportunities for individuals who might not be able to visit during a weekday.
“These expanded hours are designed to provide greater flexibility to visitors who would like better opportunities but in some cases are unable to visit the Job Connection during the week because they already are employed,” Kristin Arrowood, Goodwill’s Regional Employment Services Manager, said. “We believe our generous donors and shoppers will see the value of the investment in these additional weekend hours to provide expanded career assistance options.”
In addition to the Augusta Job Connection, the South Augusta Job Connection and Station of Hope at 3120 Peach Orchard Road will continue to be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
