In 2019, Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota (GESMN) will celebrate 100 years of workforce development leadership. A lot has changed since the early days, when we operated out of a church basement and gathered donations by horse-drawn cart. What's remained constant, however, is our vision of a world where everyone experiences the power of work.
Every person on the cover of our 2018 annual report is a participant we served. There's not a single stock photo — these are all real people who have benefited from GESMN's programs. In the past century, we've served over 600,000 people thanks to generations of thoughtful shoppers and donors like you. Together, we prepare people for work.
